Gabriel Del Rossi
Gabe started with Ciclismo Classico in 1994 and has become an important figure in adventure travel. He speaks four languages, holds two Master degrees in European Literature, is a certified bike mechanic, and a travel writer. Born in New England, Gabe decided to follow his ancestor’s roots and return to Italy in the mid-nineties. He has biked all throughout Europe and continues to learn and educate on every trip.
He began seriously biking by stealing his older brother’s Austro Daimler on the weekends. The first five minutes were a sprint as his brother ran after him, but soon after Gabe had the freedom to travel anywhere. His favorite trips include the high mountains of the French Alps, as well as Biking in Brittany and the flat riverbeds of the Loire Valley. He also enjoys the sapphire coasts of Sicily and the rolling hills of Tuscany.
In the off-season Gabe is a ski instructor in Vail, Colorado teaching alpine and telemark skiing. He has lived in the US and France, and presently resides in Sicily with his wife and daughter.
