Team Italy.

The participants in the Int. GS Trophy 2020.

Italy is among the most loyal participants in the Int. GS Trophy. They just skipped the 2018 edition and are more than ready to hit the trail again. Back in 2012 they scored the third place in the leaderboard, which is a great motivation for the new team. This time, Alberto Ballardin (27), Frederico de Angelis (42) and Michele Pradelli (39) want to go all out. Alberto Ballardin from Padova is a CNC machinist, Frederico de Angelis, who lives in Terni, works as a trade agent and Michele Pradelli from Modena earns his money as a bank manager.
