INTERVIEW WITH CARMINE DEL RICCIO World-class Master athlete with 13 Italian championships won and 14 medals, including 2 European silver medals.
Carmine Del Riccio chose to dedicate some of his time to tell us about his victory with Nextale.
Why did you choose Nextale?
Seeing the data sheet on the site. Last year I competed with a bike (not Nextale) and I finished second. This year, thanks to Nextale, I came first.
What were the strengths of the e-bike during the race?
The bike has several strengths to rely on: the rigidity of the frame, the fluidity of the motor and the lockable fork. These are three fundamental points.
How did you meet Nextale?
I became aware of this e-bike through social media, I later visited the site and then decided to buy it.
Would you recommend Nextale?
Yeah, I recommend it, and I’m already doing it. Despite the relatively new brand, it is a really good product and especially Made in Italy, which these days is really important in various respects. I recommend it very willingly.
Will you continue to choose Nextale?
I’m getting along very well with both the bike and the staff of Nextale, it’s like a big family where everyone makes their own.
What were the emotions you felt in winning?
First of all, I want to say that I didn’t expect to win.
When I found out I had won, I thought about all the efforts made in a short time, Antonio and Antonino. I was amazed by myself because despite the short time available for preparation, I won.
The best thing was to see at the beginning of the game, all eyes on me because mine was the only e-bike front on the starting lane, and winning was for me a double satisfaction: pure adrenaline.
What has Nextale allowed you to do compared to other e-bikes?
First of all it was all the Team to push me, to give that extra pinch, in addition to a vehicle with very high quality standards, I refer to the integrated system Chassis + Engine, with unique efficiency in this segment, practically looks like driving a muscular but with an outstanding powertrain.
