VICTORY AT THE GIRO D’ITALIA: BOTTECCHIA ON THE HIGHEST STEP OF THE PODIUM WITH MASNADA IN SAN GIOVANNI ROTONDO
Simply fantastic. Yesterday it was our day with an exceptional Fausto Masnada who wins the stage number six of the pink race – Cassino-San Giovanni Rotondo for 238 kilometers.
All the courage of the young talent from Bergamo is necessary in the final sprint. He became a pro rider a couple of years ago riding with the Italian Champions.
We knew it could be the right day when the breakaway started, but from that moment to the glorious victory there was a long way to go. Fausto Masnada was first of all strong to find the breakaway, thanks to a combative soul and a great Italian heart.
Only Valerio Conti of Uae, the virtual pink jersey, kept up the rhythm of Masnada.
Masna, as he is called by the team, leave a big distance behind when he was uphill and cut the finish line with his hands up on his EMME 4 SQUADRA.
He finally has been able to actualize the dedication to his uncle who dead only few days before the start of Giro.
Bottecchia is proud to win together with this Italian Team that continues to demonstrate all the determination and the skill typical of the champions.
A work in close contact with the athletes and continuous improvements have enabled us to achieve this extraordinary victory, which we feel is ours. Today more than ever, our color is RED LAB, determined, impetuous, competitive. That’s why it is the color of the passion and the desire to win!
