SETTIMANA COPPI E BARTALI: 10TH PLACE IN THE TEAM TIME TRIAL
A bittersweet opening day of Settimana Coppi e Bartali for the team Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia in the classic two stages kick off.
A morning to forget for the team that has chased all the day the breakaway of Craddock, Eenkhoorn and Dima without guessing what was going to happen on the last climb of Longiano.
In the final part of the climb a crash was involving Filippo Pozzato that was forced to abandon the race. The #Maestro was brought to the hospital where luckily he has been told that there was nothing broken.
The bad luck was double as Edoardo Zardini had a flat tire with 2 kms to go, an accident that has left the veronese climber with the same time of the peloton, 1’07” behind the winner Pascal Eenkhoorn.
In the afternoon the team time trial went definitely better with the team of Scinto and Parsani, with only six riders, that ended in 10th place 30″ behind Team Sky.
Tomorrow hard and hilly stage to Sogliano sul Rubicone, a day that should change the general classification.
