VICTORY OF THE BOTTECCHIA FACTORY TEAM WITH VISINELLI
Rafael Visinelli‘s great victory at S.Stino di Livenza for the 17th Trophy between Livenza and Malgher, part of the Autumn Trophy. Rafael, under the rain for most of the race, has no trouble to face the young Segat and the expert Dalto. Mud and rain for many are a problem but it isn’t for our Rafael, seeing his past as an excellent cyclocross rider.
Marcello Pavarin was at the Granfondo d’Autuno (VR) the last act of the Italian MTB Award and also of the MTB Ahead Tour. The parterre was excellent while the weather was not the best: an incessant rain accompanied the athletes throughout the race. After the first ramp, Marcello shows that the leg is good, passing in the first 10 at few seconds from the first group. But he has to stop in the second technical area because of a problem with the change due to heavy soil conditions. He restarted out of the first 20, and retrieves positions on positions that bring him to the top 10 but on the last ramp he has to give up some position. He closes with a good 12th position, considering the various technical problems.
Next Reds Appointment, Sunday (October 1st) in Portoviro (RO) for the 12th Bike Fornaci – 1st WIND Trophy. The race is part of the Autumn Trophy, where Rafael Visinelli is at the top of the general ranking.
