TIRRENO ADRIATICO: GAVAZZI FIFTH AND BALLERINI LEADER OF THE MOUNTAIN
Fifth place at the finish line of Pomarance for Francesco Gavazzi, behind riders such as Thomas caliber, Dumoulin, Sagan and Van Avermaet. More than 200 km of break away for the couple Davide Ballerini – Raffaello Bonusi, and the prize of the title of Leader of the Mountain for Davide Ballerini.
“I’m really proud of my boys, very good even today in animating the race and getting important results also at the presence of real big champions – said Gianni Savio – Gavazzi got a good placement, Ballerini and Bonusi have been involved in an action that has characterized almost the whole stage, and the same Ballerini is the Mountain leader. To see the green jersey, which we won in the past with climbers like Fredy Gonzales and Jose Rujano, worn by a distance rider demonstrates a great job and a great determination. Congratulations to all the boys for the way they played the race and to keep running always looking ahead, despite the great injustice of the exclusion from the Giro d’Italia.”
