Alessandro was born and raised in Rome, Italy. Cycling competitions have occupied an important part of Alessandro’s life having road raced at elite level from age 12 to 18 with the last two years in the AS Grottaferrata Team, one of the best in central Italy at that time. In those years his coach was Antonio Fradusco, a very successful racer in the ’60, and one of the best Italian coaches for juniors in the last 25 years. 

Alessandro noticed his talent for teaching/coaching while working as instructor at the Lombardi Motorcycle Racing School and with the most important motorcycle racing clubs in the North East. 

At the end of 2007 he started competing at the local level. Alessandro won several races right away and moved quickly back up through the categories. In 2009 Alessandro became a USAC Coach and started working with Roger Aspholm, a very successful local racer and bicycle coach. In 2011 Alessandro decided to start developing the concept of a school of cycling in NYC by creating ISC. 

Today Alessandro is a Cat 1 road racer and a Lev 1 USAC Coach.
