Profession: Cobbler specialized in resoling/customizing trail running shoes with Vibram Megagrip

Marco is an athlete with an engaging history! In 2011, he was one of the five “ordinary people" who took part in the very first Trailrunning Team Vibram. Years later he still loves to share with his team mates his enthusiasm and his great experience of long distance races. He also likes to prepare, adapt and fine tune his shoes and equipment: as a professional cobbler, he makes sure that his Team mates and friends have Vibram Megagrip under their feet before starting a race. Marco did a wonderful 2016 season, with an epic 11th place at UTMB and top-10 at Lavaredo and Diagonale des Fous. Great results that ensured him a 7th position in the Ultra Trail World Tour final ranking. Will “Little great man” do better in 2017?
