Colbrelli takes stage win at Deutschland Tour
Erfut, 1st september 2019 – Great win for Sonny Colbrelli in the last stage of Deutschland Tour. The Italian rider ends up in front of everyone at the end of a hard-fought sprint. Thanks to this victory, Sonny confirmed the second place overall and the conquest of the green jersey, the symbol of the Point Classification.
“Finally, Sonny smiles. Once I arrived second, third yesterday and today I won my race. It was difficult to aim for the overall and so we worked to win at least the stage. Today I didn’t want to anticipate the sprint and I waited for everyone to move with 200m to go. It went well”.
“I want to thank my teammates for the great help they have given me in all the stages. Now I go home and in a week I’ll leave for Canada for two races with a course that I like. My goal would be the World Championship in Yorkshire “.
“It’s a well deserved success – comments SD Franco Pellizotti – because it comes at the end of a stage race in which we have always been protagonists. At one point, it was clear that we could no longer win the overall and we focused only on the stage win. I am very satisfied with the work of the boys, each of them has done their best ”.
