Colbrelli leads BAHRAIN MERIDA Team at Memorial Pantani

  |   Press

After yesterday’s victory at the Coppa Bernocchi, Sonny Colbrelli will be at the start of Memorial Marco Pantani in Cesenatico, on the Adriatic coast. It’s a race that the Italian sprinter knows very well and that saw him triumph in the 2014 edition.

“It’s a race I always like – says Sonny – and of course I will ride with a good morale after Legnano’s victory. It will also be the last race before the World Championship and I want a confirmation of my good condition”.

The route of Memorial Pantani will be the classic one with departure and arrival in Cesenatico with a final circuit of 5.3 km to repeat 4 times.

Before that the peloton will travel through the inland roads, treating the challenging climb of Montevecchio three times; 5 kilometers with an average slope of 6-8% and a maximum of 14%.

“As for Bernocchi – explains SD Mario Chiesa – our captain will be Sonny, so the team will have to work for him. It’s a route that will make a great selection and we will have to be careful to protect both Colbrelli and also Bonifazio who can also make a good race”.

BAHRAIN MERIDA Team lineup for Memorial Marco Pantani: Sonny Colbrelli, Niccolò Bonifazio, Chun-Kai Feng, Ion Insausti, Mark Padun, David Per, Andrea Toniatti and Meiyin Wang
