For several years now, we have been involved in the world of sports, especially Alpine Skiing, where we see the positive values that make it possible to face and overcome any challenge: in life just as in sports or business.
This year we have confirmed our partnership with four champions engaged in different specialties that make up the TARGA TEAM: Zrinka Ljutić, Emanuele Buzzi, River Radamus and Renè De Silvestro.
Moreover, we have expanded our long-standing partnership with the Italian Winter Sports Federation by providing them with our Fleet Management solutions and expertise.
“We’re thrilled once again to be able to support this group of talented people who have focused all their energy on sports, with the great sacrifice that this entails: competing in a sport at certain levels requires you to continually raise the bar and get out of your comfort zone day after day.
It’s the same approach that we require of our teams at Targa Telematics, because it’s only with the right amount of enthusiasm, determination, and desire to overcome one’s limits that a company can make a difference.”

Targa Telematics CEO
Emanuele, longstanding member of the elite of fast disciplines, at 27 years old he is already an experienced athlete, having won the 2016 Super-G European Cup and having participated in the Olympics in Pyeongchang in 2018.
Prematurely knocked out of competition after a serious injury in January 2019 in the finish area of the Wengen downhill in Switzerland, which had seen him achieve a brilliant sixth place, last season Emanuele earned four spots in the top 15 in the World Cup and achieved his best result in the Super-G with a good ninth place in Austria in Hinterstoder.
Lele is back in full form and is one of the Italian skiers with the highest potential for 2020/2021.
Renè De Silvestro is a young Paralympic athlete who, in addition to excelling in athletics, is one of the spearheads of the Italian national ski team.
After taking part in the Pyeongchang Olympics and numerous placings, he achieved his first victory in the 2019/2020 World Cup in Veysonnaz and a third place in the giant slalom in Kranjska Gora.
Zrinka Ljutić is a rising star of world skiing. She was born in 2004 in Zagreb and has proven to be an incredibly talented athlete since taking part in the International Ski Federation.
In her first season in the FIS category in 2020/2021, she competed in European Cup and World Cup races. Zrinka demonstrated some impressive skiing in the World Cup Slalom races and achieved two victories in the European Cup: the first victory (also her first podium) was on the 26th of January in Zell am See in Slalom, followed by a second win in Krvavec, Slovenia in Giant Slalom.
River is a promising American skier specialized in Giant, Super-G, and Slalom.
At just 23 years of age he has had an impressive series of successes at the junior level, including three gold medals at the Winter Youth Olympic Games and five medals at the Junior World Championships, two of which were won in 2019 in Val di Fassa. River is now expected to be the backbone of Team Targa in this World Cup season.
We have expanded our longstanding partnership with the Italian Winter Sports Federation (FISI).
Not only are we a sponsor of the various competitions, but we have made our know-how and our fleet management solutions available to the organizers in order to ensure the utmost efficiency of the movements of all the athletes and their staff on the ski runs.
More specifically, we have equipped the vehicles of FISI with IoT (Internet of Things) technology to monitor their movements and plan the most effective and efficient coverage of the trips, optimizing their routes.
