Colbrelli on the podium
“I’ve lost a lot of speed – says Sonny Colbrelli, today second at the finish line in Peccioli – due to my opponent’s change of direction. After was to late to try to overcome him”.
“It’s a shame – continues the strong Italian athlete – I’m demonstrating that I’m really in a good shape but I have to settle for just placement at the moment. I want to thank all my teammates for the great work they did today; Sunday I will run the GP Beghelli and I will try to win also to repay them of their commitment”.
At the top of the Peccioli’s climb the Italian Andrea Pasqualonn won the 65th issue of this classic Tuscan race. It seemed a non-linear sprint and saw Wanty Groupe Goubert’s sprinter choose a trajectory that affected Sonny’s result.
“Even today – explains SD Alberto Volpi – the team worked well and has been present in the race decisive moments. Another second place after Visconti’s, which confirms the good time of the Team but again with a bitter taste”.
Next appointment for Team Bahrain Merida Saturday with number 100 edition of the Giro dell’Emilia.
