Introducing Gaetano Borghi

Comments about this discussion:



Hy friends


I am 49 years old and live in Comerio, a little village near Varese (Italy).


The first time I saw a unicycle was 11 years ago. It was in the mountains.


Only after some weeks, I tried to use the unicycle. Marco Vitale was my coach in these first months. Not easy to learn but a beautiful experience.


Since 2008 I never stopped..............


My unicycle history:


I spent some years as advisor in the Italian Unicycle Association (A.I.M.). I attended some European and World Championships (Brixen/Lagenthal/Cuneo-Mondovì/Donostia/Sittard), and several Italian Muni Championships.


In 2011 I placed 1st in Uphill (asphalt) at the Italian Muni Championship and in 2014 I set the Italian 24H-record (km 256,7).


Sometimes I like to ride alone, too, but it’s surely better to share these beautiful moments with my two sons, both 17 years old.


In the last years, I organized several Italian Championships with our local team, the Varese Insubria Unicycle Group, and some Italian Championships, such as Muni, Freestyle/X-Style, with the support of our Association.


Since 2014 I'm the President of the Italian Unicycle Association (A.I.M).


My goal is to spread the unicycle as a sport. In Italy it's not so easy..... so, ........ never say never.......let’s simply work hard and never give up.


See you soon,


Gaetano Borghi
