Lorenzo Rota Martir, from the province of Bergamo, is a man of few words and a shy gaze but an exuberant character. A skyrunner in the summer and ski mountaineer in the winter, Lorenzo discovered his passion for running at the age of 16, finding in the high mountains the ideal environment for his broad and elegant stride. Like his fellow Team Italia members, he wore the yellow and blue of the Rookie Team for one season, in 2021, before joining Team Espoir.
Lorenzo has already achieved high-level results in this jersey, including, most notably, the title of Italian champion in the SkySnow Vertical and second place in the Grignetta Vertical. In 2022, a tibia injury compromised the rest of his season, forcing an early stop.
This year, Lorenzo is ready to bring his curly hair back to the Italian trails, to embark again on the journey he had to abandon and meet his full potential.
