Newcomer to the program is first-year junior Gianluca Vernassa of Itlay. In 2011 Gianluca demonstrated massive potential winning almost every race he entered, while clocking fast times and consistently keeping fellow elite riders on edge. Look for Vernassa to contend in the junior ranks, while building a strong resume in the sport.
