DEBUTTO VINCENTE PER L’ANDRONI GIOCATTOLI SIDERMEC: PACIONI AL TACHIRA FIRMA LA PRIMA VITTORIA 2020
The first Italian team to win in this 2020, the androni Giocattoli Sidermec at the Venezuelan stage race continues its beautiful tradition. On the Tariba circuit in San Cristobal (117.6 km total divided into 8 laps) the champions of Italy, led by team manager Gianni Savio and sports director Giampaolo Cheula, they checked well to launch their first sprinter in the final sprint. The last forerunner for the 26-year-old Pacioni was Nicola Venchiarutti, who then closed again close to ten (12°). Pacioni, who at the end of this first stage also dressed the yellow jersey of leader of the general classification, preceded the Venezuelans Yaguaro and Salinas.
On the podium of the day to reward the winner (to the fifth success in career) also the Venezuelan deputy minister of sport Juan Carlos amarante who has long entertained with the team manager of androni Giocattoli Sidermec Gianni Savio. From the friendly conversation, followed also by the meeting with sport minister Pedro Infante, it seems that the government is willing to honour the old debt with the team, related to the 2014 sponsorship, and to start a new project aimed at the growth of young Venezuelan runners with Gianni Savio as a mentor.
