TOUR OF HAINAN: MARECZKO AND PACIONI IN THE TOP 10 OF THE FINAL STAGE

A double top 10 in the final stage of the Tour of Hainan with finish in Danzhou has closed the 2018 season of the team Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia.

The stage was won by Simon Pellaud that with an attack at -2 kms to go has left behind his former breakaway companions with the peloton that wasn’t able to close the gap despite the great work of our team in the last 10 kms.

The regret is even bigger considering that Jakub Mareczko has won the sprint for the 7th stage with his team mate Luca Pacioni just behind him in 10th place.

In the general classification Simone Velasco has advanced of one place closing in 7th.

The season of the team Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia ends with 19 wins and a total of 46 podiums, a balance that will be discussed in the following days as the new season will be planned from the beginning of november.
