“The team is preparing for the 2019 debut with a well-balanced team to face even the toughest stages of the Argentine race and try to be competitive in the sprint. It will be a first important test for the two neo-pro Colombian climbers Osorio and Acosta, for our experienced man Ivan Santaromita and especially for Hideto Nakane appeared immediately in great condition in the pre-season tests. We will look for a good result in the hardest stages trying also to take care of the overall ranking, looking for a top 10 placement. For the fastest stages the Cima brothers are very motivated with Damiano who has already proven to be able to win and the young Imerio Cima looking for a new season of successes after an unlucky 2018 with too many injuries that stopped him.”
