The curtain has closed on the 2014 season. Area Zero D'Amico stood out as major players from start to finish, from their debut in the pack at the GP Costa Etruschi in February, all the way to the GP Beghelli in October. ?On Sunday, in this end of season classic on the Italian calendar which is held on the roads of Emilia, Valerio Conti (Lampre) won the race ahead of Kristijan Koren (Cannondale) and Ilnur Zakarin (Rusvelo). Area Zero came in 5th place with Andrea Pasqualon, second in the bunch sprint group that was left on the wheels of the trio that beat everyone over the finish line at Monteveglio (RE). It was another excellent placement scored by AreaZero D'Amico, which has confirmed itself as the first Italian continental formation in the peloton, the only one able to place a rider in the top10, even in this last test of the season, as they went “head to head” with the top pro tour and professional teams.??In its “zero year”, Area Zero D’Amico put together quite an impressive portfolio: 2 victories, the 7th stage in the Vuelta Colombia and the GP Sukarnten in Austria with Andrea Pasqualon. Pasqualon was 3rd again at the GP Costa Etruschi and at theTrofeo Laigueglia, 3rd in the 11th stage of the Vuelta a Colombia, 5th at the Giro dell’Appennino and 5th at the GP Beghelli. Not to mention other excellent results like the jersey for best young rider that went to Simone Petilli at the Settimana Coppi & Bartali and the one that went to Paolo Ciavatta as best climber in the Vuelta Castilla y Leon. And then it was a breakout year for Fabio Chinello, who proved to be a rider with a promising future, and who was so close to success on so many occasions: 2nd at the GP Izola; 2nd, 3rd and 5th in Colombia; 5th at the Circuito Getxo, 5th at the Coppa Bernocchi and 3rd in the Memorial Pantani.
