A professional road bicycle racer, Daniel Oss goes round the world several times a year. He’s a citizen of world, but, when Pro-sports-stargate calm, everything revolves around Torbole, the tough-yet-sweet corner of Lake Garda perfect to train all year-long. Daniel is a smiling young man with insane hair, a fucking outsider and a big friend. We share that groovy way to be pure and part of a brand new sport-for-sport cycling attitude, play rock music and eat huge chunks of meat, like new-wave cannibals.
Discover here a little bit more about a super close Mecki’s friend. It’s only bike and rock&roll, and we like it.
