THE ANDRONI SIDERMEC GIOCATTOLI IN THE NATIONAL TEAM WITH MASNADA
There is also Fausto Masnada in the Italian national team that tomorrow will compete in the pre-Olympic “test event” in Tokyo, Japan.
For the Bergamo rider of the Androni Giocattoli Sidermec the blue jersey is the beautiful continuation of a great season culminating with the stage victory at the Giro d’Italia. In the national team of Davide Cassani, where Masnada is the youngest, there will also be Dario Cataldo (Astana), the Italian champion Davide Formolo (Bora Hansgrohe) and Diego Ulissi (Uae).
The path of the Japanese race, on the track of the Olympics next year but shorter than the one that will award the medals in twelve months, measures 179 kilometers. At the start there will be 24 formations for 120 runners.
For Androni Giocattoli Sidermec this year is not the first time for a rider in blue: in June it was the turn of the other Bergamo Mattia Cattaneo to wear the national team shirt in the European Games of Minsk, won by Davide Ballerini.
