Colbrelli close to victory
“We did the race for Sonny – tells Manuele Boaro at the finish line in Monteveglio – but in the end we have harvested less than we hoped for. The second place is, however, another good result that closes a week in which we have been protagonists”.
“I went on the break with two laps to go – continues the Italian rider – to force the other teams to work. They got us back at the beginning of the last climb, but Sanchez surprised us by attacking 5km from the finish line”.
Colbrelli won the bunch sprint for the secondo place. “The condition is always good – he says – and I’m doing a good end of the season. Another placement that encourages me to do better1”.
Spaniard Luis Leon Sanchez has won solo the 22nd edition of GP Bruno Beghelli ahead of our sprinter and Italian Elia Viviani.
“Even today the team has been united and has worked well – explains SD Paolo Slongo – the race winner, is a very experienced rider and smelled the right occasion. That’s fine, now we are going to Tre Valli Varesine; it’s a race where we can obtain a good result”.
Next Team race, in fact, next Tuesday at the Three Valli Varesine. A classic international calendar with arrival at Varese after 192 kilometers. The last two editions were won by our athletes: Nibali in 2015 and Colbrelli last year.
