Luna Rossa Team

During an America's Cup race they will develop up to an average of about 2,000 watts, enough to light up a 50 square meter room. They are Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli’s cyclors, the “power bank” of the AC75. The cyclors’ role is crucial, because the tuning of the aero part of the boat relies on their leg power. Unlike the boats of the past, where grinders turned the handles with the strength of their arms, today's foiling monohulls have four cyclors who, by means of pedals, power-up the hydraulic systems that allow the trimmers to adjust sails and mast.

Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli's Power Team includes athletes with different backgrounds and from several sports: from the world of rowing are Romano Battisti (silver medalist in London 2012), Emanuele Liuzzi (Bronze at the World Championships in Sarasota), Bruno Rosetti (Bronze at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics), Nicholas Brezzi (seven world championships and multiple medals), Cesare Gabbia (several medals between world and European championships), and Luca Kirwan (participation in the 2019 U23 World Championships). Paolo Simion comes from professional cycling (three times Giro d'Italia and winning the last stage of the Tour of Croatia), while Enrico Voltolini, in addition to being boat captain of the AC40, has participated in two Olympic campaigns in Finn and Star and won several international regattas. Finally, Mattia Camboni is a former windsurfing champion (several gold and silver medals and a fifth place at the Tokyo Games).
