ANDRONI GIOCATTOLI SIDERMEC: THE BALANCE FOR THE SETTIMANA CICLISTICA ITALIANA IS GOOD
The results are good for Androni Giocattoli Sidermec (Bettiniphoto) at the Settimana Ciclistica Italiana which ended yesterday after five stages.
The team, led by Giovanni Ellena and Alessandro Spezialetti, was a good protagonist of the Sardinian race, which proposed Salice Occhiali, one of the historical and most important partners of Androni Giocattoli Sidermec, among its technical sponsors. Especially the Swiss Simon Pellaud, author of several attack actions, stood out. Pellaud also wore the green leader’s jersey for the mountain grand prix for three days.
In the last stage, Jhonatan Restrepo finished second, overtaken in the sprint by the German Ackermann. Also worth noting is Santiago Umba’s second place finish in the youth rankings behind Giovanni Aleotti.
The comment of the team manager Gianni Savio also arrives on the Sardinian race: «We almost won with Jhonatan Restrepo and with the results obtained we finished third – first among the Professional teams – in the Italian team championship standings. Reaching the World Tour Bahrain and Trek will be very difficult, but we will certainly try».
