Bonifazio takes the 3trd place and the first podium for the team BAHRAIN MERIDA at the stage 3 on Tour Down Under 2017
Thursday 19th, January – Another great result by the young talented sprinter in Australia
At the bunch sprint, Niccolò Bonifazio ranked 3rd in Tour Down Under stage 3 in Victor Harbour. Again, BAHRAIN MERIDA had another great result at the beginning of the season.
“Watching how they are doing at the sprint, I was quite impressed,” said Phillipe Mauduit, our sports director.
“The thing is that we were losing power at the last 2 kilometres. For us, it was a little bit complicated, we don’t have really little boys, but we have a really good team, they were doing a perfect teamwork. I was very satisfied with the team spirits.”
“I was a nice parcour, but finally, there’s a little climb, the wind and the speed, by the end made the sprint harder,” said Bonifazio with satisfaction. Also he expects that he can bring this great results in Tour Down Under back in the classics in Europe.
Before the queen stage coming on Saturday, there’s one more opportunity for sprinters in the Northern Adelaide. We will see our fastest man of the day at Campbelltown after 149.5 kilometre challenge.
