Best Ultra Run Experience:

MARATHON DES SABLES edition 2000 -April 2000: Because it has been the hardest and most fascinating because of territory. After that I like very much running under these circumstances of warm climate.


Weird Experience:

MARATHON DES SABLES edition 1999 - April 1999: Because it was my first experience in the desert.


Challenge:

My first "100 Km. Del Passatore" - Year 1989. Not many friends of mine would have thought I could manage to finish the running. I did it and from that time on I always came to finish.


Why:

Because Ultras are fascinating. Furthermore I can always test the efficiency of my body and my head.... feeling than much younger.


Why badwater:

Because it seems to be one of the hardest ultras in the world. Because my friends Amerigo Puntelli and Piergiorgio Scaramelli told me about it. They had run Marathon Des Sables 1999 with me. They ran Badwater's 2000: Amerigo thinks I could manage it.
