TOUR DE LANGKAWI: EUGERT ZHUPA ONE STEP AWAY FROM AN AMAZING DOUBLE

Another good performance for the team Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia at the Tour de Langkawi where Eugert Zhupa was really close to bring to the team the second win in a row.

A day all into the attack for the albanian rider who was part of a 21 riders attack, including Giuseppe Fonzi and Simone Velasco, that became 41 after a long chase by the yellow jersey Ovechkin and our own Luca Raggio.

Once there was the regroupment another serie of attacks started with Zhupa and Fonzi joining the right one with 30 kms to gaining enough seconds to go till the end of the stage.

In the sprint Manuel Belletti was the fastest rider with Zhupa just after him and with Fonzi, 10th, that climbs till the 4th place in the general classification.

The great condition of the team is confirmed by the 1st place in the teams classification before tomorrow’s final stage in Kuala Lumpur
