The diamond is a symbol of strength, courage and invincibility. It’s with these word that Andrea Pusateri, a Paralympic cycling champion on the road in the C1 category and new Pissei ambassador, likes to portray himself. Nicknamed “Roccia” by his friends, Pusateri has already gone through many challenges in his life and he certainly has the courage to face new ones.
At the age of four, in 1997, Andrea Pusateri fell on the rail track at the Monza station, just as the train was coming. His mother died in the successful attempt to save Andrea, who, however, lost his right leg. His new began from there, leading to turn this profound suffering into a new strength.
Since 2008, Pusateri has taken on the challenge of Paralympic cycling, obtaining several victories and excellent placements worldwide. The Italian athlete triumphed in 9 Italian championships, in addition to a gold medal and a silver medal in World Cup. His latest “challenge” is the participation in the Gran Fondo Strade Bianche, on the dirt roads of the Crete Senesi, wearing Pissei clothing.
For the Italian brand, which has always striving to make a product of high performance and style, a new diamond symbol of strength, courage and invincibility.
