A spectacular win for Sonny Colbrelli
Oman Convention and Exhibition Center, Tuesday 19 February – Finally! The first victory of the season came thanks to a superb sprint by Sonny Colbrelli, who won stage 4 of the Tour of Oman.
“I’m very happy – the Italian rider commented – I was looking for the victory and it arrived! My thanks go to all my teammates who have given me a lot of help during all day long. I knew the last km and I started sprinting at the right time. It was all perfect! “.
“In recent days, I suffered a lot of heat and only today I had the right feelings. I have to thank Greg Van Avarmaet who did not lock me up in the sprint, he was a true gentleman. Now I look with more confidence at the classics in Belgium and Milan-Sanremo. My condition is growing day by day”.
“I’m very happy with how the whole team worked – explains DS Alberto Volpi – and all of today’s efforts have been finalized by Sonny’s great sprint. I had said that it was a suitable ending for him and today he showed all his qualities, I am glad also that our first win of 2019 came right in this part of the world not far from Bahrain “.
