Third win a row!

By | News | No Comments

On the weekend Team Colpack Ballan got the third victory in this season. On Sunday it was Nicolas Gomez‘s time to celebrate.

SIVELLA (TV): The Colombian won in a sprint the Gran Premio Primavera for amateurs, beating the couple Elia Menegale, Alessio Portello.
These are Gomez’s words, radiant after the finish line: “It has been a hard race since the beginning. I’m sorry for my teammate Filippo Baroncini who had a crash. All the guys were great. They sacrificed themselves for me. It was incredible to see guys who can win, making themselves available. In the final Davide Boscaro and Francesco Della Lunga guided me with mastery and for a long time, leaving me in the first positions. Basically, I just had to sprint!”.

The dedications: “I hope that today’s is only the first of a long series of successes. I thought about 2 of my dead friends Polvo and Andres, my family, my girlfriend, the president Beppe Colleoni and the Ballan family. I’ll be at the start of next Saturday, Sunday and Monday’s races where I hope to perform well again”.

A big wish for a speedy recovery to Michele Gazzoli, who suffered a big hematoma after a crash, but above all to Filippo Baroncini, who had his collarbone fractured after a crash. We look forward to seeing you soon in the saddle Filippo!

A great weekend!

Last weekend has been a blast for Team Colpack Ballan, as they managed to get a win and a second place in the races in Cantagrillo (PT) and Fubine (AL).

CANTAGRILLO: First victory of the season, and in the Under 23 category, for Samuel Quaranta, who won the sprint at Trofeo Arcadia Calcestruzzi, in Tuscany.

Quaranta about the race: “We were in a 6 riders breakaway, and I managed to hold on and win the sprint. An opponent anticipated his move, but I was able to keep my advantage until the finish line. I still can’t believe it. I have to realize what I’ve done”.
Samuel Quaranta’s debut in the Under 23 category: “Last week I raced in Larciano with the profs, and I retired after 120 km”.
Samuel is the son of Ivan Quaranta, a sprinter who in his career achieved 6 successes at the Giro d’Italia, wearing the pink jersey one day.

FUBINE: Second place for Alessio Martinelli (Team Colpack Ballan) in the Monferrato region. The rider from Valtellina continues to improve his shape after the 4th place of last week.
“A hard race – explained Martinelli – on an undulating track and a tough final. A nervous test on narrow roads. It’s bad to lose like this, but I’m aware that I’m doing well and I’m getting ready to face the most challenging tests, of international level, of the month of April”.

The best start

Great start of the season on Saturday for Cinelli Pressure and for Team Colpack Ballan, that immediately scored with Davide Persico in the Coppa San Geo.
The rider from Bergamo started the new season as he had finished the last, winning (in 2020 in Castelletto Cervo).
Here are Persico’s words immediately after the race: “I feel so much satisfaction because we were all very much looking forward to this victory. I come from a good winter in which I have trained well, first in Spain in the meeting with the team Bardiani CSF Faizanè, and then with all the Colpack Ballan in Tortoreto Lido. I dedicate this success to my family, to Beppe Colleoni and to the fantastic teammates that today have worked at their best”.

Persico continued, “We were united and the teammates got me into position. In the final, a great pull of Boscaro with Gazzoli launched me for the sprint. I must say that all have behaved very well: Luca Rastelli, Gidas Umbri, Nicolas Gomez and Francesco Calì.”.

Antonio Bevilacqua, team manager, commented on the race: “Well, what can I say… The team was fantastic. We cared so much to the Coppa San Geo, especially our president Beppe Colleoni who was with us in the team car. This result is the result of great work and targeted programming. Thanks to all the staff”.

A magic double!

By | News | No Comments

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”.

A team victory!

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”.

Winning Pressure!

Great victory for Team Colpack Ballan yesterday. Antonio Tiberi arrived alone at the finish line of the International Trofeo città di San Vendemiano-Trofeo Industria e Commercio, a UCI European Tour 1.2MU class race.
Tiberi’s breakaway started with 15 km to go, at first together with Filippo Conca, and then alone. For the Roman rider, this is the third seasonal success after Imola and Tuscany. Behind him, at more than a minute, Kevin Colleoni, and Matteo Baseggio.

“It was a great joy – said Tiberi himself – arrived after a demanding race. I’d love to dedicate this victory to Mr. Beppe Colleoni who followed us in streaming.  I thank the whole team and the mechanic, Stefano Casiraghi, who worked until late to give me Cinelli’s new bike. It worked out perfectly”.
“I broke away with Conca, but he confessed he was not in great shape. I didn’t want to risk it and on the climb that follows Cà del Poggio I tried to escape. I succeeded briefly to make the void and arrive alone. Since last week I realized I’m in a super-fast shape”.

The Colpack Ballan rider expressed a regret: “Too bad that there is no World Championship, because of Covid, with this condition I feel that I could have done well. Now I hope to give Colpack Ballan more satisfactions”.

Tiberi raced and won with Pressure, the top of the Cinelli racing family.
