JACOPO MOSCA HAS WON THE TOUR OF HAINAN

Jacopo Mosca is the winner of the 12th edition of the Tour of the Hainan at the end of a stage where the team Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia has offered a great performance protecting the leadership of his captain and in the same time chasing the 6th win of Jakub Mareczko.

A flat tyre with 5 kms to go has sent off #Kuba from the fight for the win with Mosca who advanced in the first positions of the peloton to check his rivals while Joseph Cooper was achieving a victory anticipating the sprinters with an attack at 3 kms to go.

It was celebration time for Jacopo Mosca that with 24 years old and at his first season as a pro claims an important win in a stage race with Jakub Mareczko that brings home the green jersey of the points classification.

This was the end of the 2017 of the team Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia, a year with 18 wins where our young talents could grow up and take part in important races. The future is bright
