BOTTECCHIA FACTORY TEAM. TOP 10 AT THE TREMALZO BIKE FOR DAL GRANDE
Stefano Dal Grande reaches the top ten in a spectacular race.
A beautiful autumn day gave 600 athletes a good morning in Tremosine on Lake Garda. The first Elite grid was made up of many important names of the Italian and European mtb world. The Tremalzo Bike is a competition that cannot be missed in the calendar. At 10 am the departure, and immediately a quartet comes off and dictates the rhythm. Stefano and 5 other bikers launch themselves in pursuit and reach Passo Tremalzo at about 1900 meters high. The 14 km descent is really tough and leads to the foot of Monte Zenone where the last effort awaits them before it arrived. Medvedev crosses the finish line, followed by Pruus and Chiarini. Dal Grande Stefano arrives sixth confirming a good shape. Pavarin, unfortunately, victim of a mechanical failure too far from the technical assistance, must retire and walk back. Marco D’Agostino, despite the bad injury of last week he finished the race very well. But for the Reds team the Tremalzo Bike was an important race because it saw our great Efrem Bonelli return to the race after months of absence for health reasons. A great day and a big smile of joy for Efrem to pass under the arch of the arrival.
