A great end of the season for the athletes of Team Colpack Ballan who, in Ponsacco, Tuscany, almost got an incredible double victory yesterday. A first place with Michele Gazzoli, in the morning race, and a 2nd place for Antonio Tiberi, in the afternoon time trial.
Super happy the winner of the morning, Michele Gazzoli, said: “2 successes in 2 races (Sunday he won in Montecatini Terme) is a dream. I had been hoping for a long time to realize a double like this. Evidently, things have settled down and I have more confidence. Everything is different and I am happy”.
The construction of the sprint starts from afar: “The last 15 km we made the selection and thanks to my companions the group has thinned out. Then they flew me to the finish with Tiberi and Rastelli for the final launch. At 250 meters I started in progression and I won at the photo finish”.
The afternoon was focused on Antonio Tiberi who had been coming for a very intense week. The youngster has ridden an excellent time on the 33 km of the track.
Tiberi: “I felt good and the route had a lot of wind in the initial part. Everything went well, maybe I just started a bit slow. The secret of these team performances? We found a good balance and we work compactly for the goal”.
