MANUEL BELLETTI ONE STEP AWAY FROM THE PODIUM

Only few centimetres separed Manuel Belletti from the podium in the 4th stage of the Vuelta a San Juan where Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia got really close to an important result in a sprint dominated by the colombian Fernando Gaviria.

During the stage all the team was close to his sprinter especially with Alex Turrin and Filippo Pozzato who both did a great job to protect him till the last km avoiding the crashes that characterized a chaotic day.

Today the scenario will change radically with the first and only uphill finish to Alto Colorado, a chance for our climbers Yonder Godoy and Julen Amezqueta
