Wie bereits in der Pressemitteilung von Gigi Madeddu’s Boardsponsorwechsel vermutet war es nur eine Frage der Zeit bis der erste #SaBarraStyle Fahrer ebenfalls auf 99NoveNove Boards unterwegs sein wird. Rossel Bertoldo macht den Anfang und war mit dem gelben StylePro bereits auf den PWA Stops in Podersdorf und Leucate am Start. Der 25-jährige Freestyler hat sein Level in kürzester Zeit auf Worldcup Niveau geschraubt und mit 99 NoveNove noch viel vor..
25 year old freestyler resident in Sa Barra (Sant’Antioco, Sardina) from Desio (Milan), Rossel Bertoldo, joins 99NoveNove Team. Rossel is one of the #SaBarraStyleProject boys, a project headed by Gigi Madeddu, who is also a 99NoveNove team rider. These boys are training in the famous and ‘social’ Sardinian spot of Sa Barra which is ideal for freestyle and they have achieved outstanding levels. This year Rossel will take part in the PWA Tour with his new StylePro boards. All the 99NoveNove Team wishes Rossel a satisfactory and succesfull season.
QUOTE FROM ROSSEL BERTOLDO / ITA-832
‘Being in the 99NoveNove team is a very important achievement and an occasion which I will capatilise on to the best of my abilities. Being part of the brand led by Cesare Cantagalli is a great motivation for me, Cesare made the history of Italian, European and Worldwide windsurfing.
Another reason to be very proud is surely the ‘Made in Italy’ a synonymous of high quality and style.
Gianni Valdambrini is a plus, a shaper who does not need any introduction and who has already been very keen to listen to my opinions and the ones coming from Windsurfing Club Sa Barra.
The collaboration between riders and manufacturers is a key strategy and what every rider desires, it makes me very happy in view of this new adventure.’
QUOTE FROM CESARE CANTAGALLI (Brand Manager and Founder)
‘The entry of Rossel Bertoldo into our fresh 99NoveNove Italian Team is also very important to contribute to the activity of Gigi Madeddu in terms of promotion and work in the Sa Barra Windsurfing Center of Gigi. In this way the staff of Windsurfing Club Sa Barra in Sardinia, which is now a 99NoveNove Windsurfing Center, has two outstanding Italian windsurfers who will be able to advise professionally the clients of the Center. Further, Rossel is a promising athlete who has improved in a very short time and is now ready for the PWA and he will be a reference point for younger windsurfers for whom 99NoveNove has many projects. For all the above reasons I am very proud and happy to have Rossel in our Team!’
