Great team performance for Team Colpack Ballan at the Trofeo Del Rosso last Sunday, thanks to Michele Gazzoli, 1st on the finishing line, ahead of his teammate Luca Rastelli, 2nd at 17″, and Tommaso Rigatti, 4th.
A meaningful race, especially for Michele Gazzoli, who has been experiencing a troubled season. The sprinter from Brescia seemed to have lost the feeling with the highest step of the podium. Is the same rider who tells all his joy and sums up the race.
“It was a though race with a breakaway that characterized all the central part with an advantage that exceeded 3 minutes. Here we of Colpack Ballan entered into action with a rhythm that thinned the advantage and selected the group. Uphill we remained in 3, with Rastelli doing the pace, I started on the climb and arrived alone. Evidently it was one of those days when all the planets lined up, there was rain, which I love and everything went in the right direction. Thanks to all the teammates for their generosity”.
By his side, the second classified Rastelli comments: “An incredible effort. When Gazzoli started from the back we were left in 2, but our adversary made a mistake downhill and so I found myself alone in second position that I kept until the finish line for a breath”.
