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!
