My name is Stefano Roumaldi from Medicina, Bologna, Italy
I work in the family body shop with my father and my brother whom I thank for the extra work during my absence.
Tuscany Trail in 2016 was my first long distance event and after that, I‘ve taken part in numerous Trails in Italy, where my best result was second place in Italy Divide 2017. Editor: Josh Ibbett won, Jay Petervary was 4th
Last year I was a rookie on Tour Divide but the inexperience and little problems didn’t stop me from closing the race in 18 days and 15 hours.
The memory of the beautiful journey and the thought of being able to do better accompanied me after my return and at the end, I’ve decided to race again in 2019.
For the Tour Divide 2019 I'll try to have fun and push as much as possible to take a few hours off my previous time.
This year I will be riding a Locomotive Cycle Midnight Express Titanium Bike , equipped with Miss Grape Bags and off course I’ll wear AepicaSport technical clothes.
Thank also to my friend Federico of Rush Bike for the technical support and the maintenance of the bike. A special thanks to my family that allow me to live a dream like TD .
