Vito has been racing since he was 16, and up to this day, remains deeply passionate about cycling. During the 1980's, Vito competed in several races in North America and Europe, often going head to head with champion cyclists such as Steve Bauer, Greg Lemond, Francesco Moser, qualifying five consecutive times for the Masters World Championships. Just three years ago, Vito won the Miami Gran Fondo alongside legendary rider Mario Cipollini, averaging in the upper 48-49 kph for most of their ride to victory.
Vito operates a high performance cycle training studio in Aurora, Ontario for seasoned riders and beginner cyclists alike and is the exclusive distributor of Bormoio Road Race Bikes. Vito is also the president and CEO of B1 Evo Cycling Club.
Vito's 24 Hour Ride for Christian is raising funds and awareness for vital genetic research at Sick Kids Hospital.
