60-Second Interview with Rider & Photographer Andrea Schilirò



Andrea Schilirò is difficult to describe because he just does damn so much.

First there’s photographer Andrea who is constantly looking to capture the emotion in the right light. Always attracted to snow, street, skate and of course, bike.

Then there’s athlete Andrea who can switch from alleycat fixie races to cyclocross, to MTB to triathlons. Anything which involves his legs spinning makes him feel a real freedom.

There’s also the team manager Andrea, Dosnoventa European Team are drilled, pushed and pulled harder each day.

Lastly there’s ambassador Andrea, he entertains, motivates, inspires people about the products he uses. He lives the experience as a journey and cycling is an integral part of his life- his house is decorated with saddles, wheels and handlebars. He managed to take time out of his multiple job roles to speak to us about chamois cream, tattoos and owls.
