Mattia De Marchi, 28 years old and cycling since he was 11.
He made it through all the youth categories. Juniones, U23 until the big chance to sign as a stagier in the Pro Peloton in summer 2016. Two months in which he’s able to win the queen stage of Tour of China.
After a couple of years in Continental teams, he is now enjoying a different form of cycling, turning to long distances and gravel events.
He will represent Turmeric in our mix for #AMR2020 and will race solo.
Turmeric comes from the root of Curcuma longa, a leafy plant in the ginger family. The root, or rhizome, has a tough brown skin and bright orange flesh. Ground Turmeric comes from fingers which extend from the root. It is boiled or steamed and then dried, and ground.
Turmeric, with its brilliant yellow color, has been used as a dye, medicine, and flavoring since 600 BC. In 1280, Marco Polo described Turmeric as “a vegetable with the properties of saffron, yet it is not really saffron.” Turmeric is mildly aromatic and has scents of orange or ginger. It has a pungent, bitter flavor.
