A podium full of colors Bahrain Merida
Darfo Boario Terme, 30th June – “Unfortunately, the sprint is not my specialty” – smiles Domenico Pozzovivo – “but I think I did a good race”. The Italian rider finished third behind his teammate Giovanni Visconti and the race winner and new Italian road champion Elia Viviani.
On a very hot day, the TBM has long led the race in the front, checking the breakaway of the day. “The path was nervous and the many attacks in the final made the selection – adds Domenico – I wanted to find the race pace and understand how I am. All went well and I’m ready lo leave for the Tour de France.”
Giovanni Visconti “I lost a moment before the last climb and maybe I lost there the race. Too bad, I would have liked to wear the Italian champion’s jersey, but in the end my performance I think was very good “.
Sport Director Paolo Slongo “The route was less demanding than we expected and it was clear that Vincenzo was too controlled. We tried with Domenico and Giovanni but they found a super Viviani on their way “.
