Here’s a brief comment from Andrea Garosio, our best placed rider:”It’s my first time here. Today the hardest part was in the final, I thought it would be good to be in Top 10, but guys were full gas and I was dropped after Mas attacked. I stayed in my position. I would like to thank my teammate for doing a fantastic job and took me to the first position.”
