A brave team for the Deutschland Tour
The Deutschland Tour 2019 set off on 29 August to finish on 1 September. Four stages, for more than 700 kilometers, with the start in Hannover and the finale stage in Erfurt. Last year Matej Mohoric was the overall winner and again this year the success should go probably to a strong sprinter or a Classic rider.
Sonny Colbrelli is well motivated, fresh from his 9th place at the EuroEyes Cyclassics Hamburg last Sunday. “I did two weeks training in the mountains around Livigno – the Italian rider explained – and on Sunday I already made a Top Ten. I like the Deutschland Tour and the uphill finish of the last stage could be a springboard for the overall “.
Vincenzo Nibali and Damiano Caruso return to the races after the Tour de France. “Last year – says Damiano – I finished in 5th position and this year I hope I can have a good race. I haven’t competed since the end of the Tour and I’m curious to see what my condition will be”.
For SD Franco Pellizotti “As for last year’s edition, this will also be a hard-fought race that will probably be decided for a few seconds. Sonny will aim not only to win a stage but also to the overall. Vincenzo is back and will be free to do his own race depending on his feelings “.
