SOSA BRINGS THE ANDRONI GIOCATTOLI SIDERMEC AT THE TOP OF THE TOUR OF THE ALPS
It has been a beautiful and above all interesting day, full of emotions and perspectives, the one that the Androni Giocattoli Sidermec lived yesterday at the Tour of the Alps. In the stage with the finish at the Alpe di Pampeago another great race came from Ivan Sosa, who with the third place (just like yesterday), just behind the winner Lopez, and Pinot and in front of Froome, gained also the top of the general classification of the stage race in Trentino.
A result that certainly goes beyond the expectations of the eve for the Colombian climber who also well prepared himself, like his teammates (yesterday on a long runaway for Marco Frapporti), with the retreat in the height in Sierra Nevada. Waiting to understand where “Ivanito” can already arrive at this Tour of the Alps, at Androni Giocattoli Sidermec, in the afternoon when there is to be seen the cyclamen shirt of the new leader, remains some important consideration, made of courses and historical appeals.
The first reflection is that evidently the streets of the ex Giro del Trentino say well to the team directed by Gianni Savio, fresh seventy years old that has made many “discoveries”. A recent example, from and of Trentino, is Egan Bernal, who last year with the Androni Giocattoli Sidermec tema made a great result in the short stage race, taking away the best young jersey. Going further back with the memory, always talking about South Americans, Gianni Savio certainly can not forget the Venezuelan Leonardo Sierra, who won in 1991 the Giro del Trentino.
This memories make us even more excited for the third place of this boy with the climb in the DNA, which is only twenty years old (it will be 21 at the end of October) and who last night with dreams, brought to bed also two shirts of the Tour of the Alps, the one of the general leader and the young one.
