The Giro d’Italia of Androni Giocattoli Sidermec was shot with the chronometer of Jerusalem, for the occasion also marked with the UnicoPlus brand. In the test against the time of 9.7 kilometers, difficult to interpret on a path uphill and downhill with many curves, the champions of Italy started, without a real specialist, with the aim of defending themselves and so it was. The best of the team, in the warm afternoon of Jerusalem, was at last the climber Fausto Masnada. The 24 years old cyclist from Bergamo finished 51 seconds behind the winner Tom Dumoulin, world champion of the specialty, the outgoing pink jersey and great favorite of the day. Masnada has just finished a second behind Fabio Aru and with fourteen seconds of delay from the British Chris Froome.

Mattia Cattaneo’s test is also comforting, returning to this Giro after the fall and the fracture of the right clavicle to Coppi and Bartali.

Tomorrow the Giro d’Italia will live its first stage in line with arrival in Tel Aviv and the real Tour for Androni Giocattoli Sidermec will also start from the Israeli capital.
