Yesterday evening, at the cena della Prova Generale of Valdimontone, Antonio Francesco Mula got his nickname: Shardana. Shardana is the name of the ancient warriors (Sciardana) of Sardinia. They are known for never giving up on their goal.
Antonio Francesco Mula, born in Oliena on October 22, 1997, was a student of Ortu during his stay in Sardinia. He arrived in Siena very young, became a student of Andrea Mari and worked for him for many years. On August 13, 2019 he rode the Prima Prova at Bruco on Schietta. His girlfriend, Rachele is a contradaiola from Oca. So he is well integrated in Siena.
He had a really strong preseason in the Provincia and the captains noticed him. His debut does not come out of the blue.
