Hi, I originally posted this in the regular ol' Road Cycling Forum, and was advised to repost it here, so here goes:
I'm heading over to Italy for about three months to do some racing, and have some unanswered questions. I'm a Cat 2 in the US, and want to race at the Elite level when I get there, but I've been unable to find a calendar for Elite races except for U23.
Also, I don't have a European team yet, and would appreciate any pointers on hooking up with one of them.
Finally, I know that I need a UCI license and permission letters from USAC, but what about the Italian Federation? Do I need to buy an Italian racing license as well?
Thanks for the help. I speak limited Italian and trying to navigate the less-than-crystal clear FCI website has been tough.
