Week-end full of races for the #OrangeBlue involved both in the Tour de Hokkaido in Japan and the historic European races, Brussels Cycling Classic and GP de Fourmies. On the team-car for the European race there will be Sports Director Alessandro Donati who has selected a balanced line-up to face every possible race development.
There will be the winner of the fourth stage of the Tour of Utah 4th stage Marco Canola, the experienced rider Ivan Santaromita and the fast wheel Giovanni Lonardi and Imerio Cima who in the event of a sprint finish will be the team’s leading men, with Damiano Cima as support. The Colombian climbers Alejandro Osorio and Ruben Acosta will complete the roster.
These are the words before the race for DS Alessandro Donati: “After a couple of weeks off the final rush begins, with many important races in which we will try to leave the sign. At the Brussels Cycling Classic a sprint finish will be possible with Imerio Cima and Giovanni Lonardi. At the GP de Fourmies different race scenarios are likely to be possible and each of our athletes will have a specific task, with athletes ready to take action from afar and the climbers reactive for the final circuit.”
