ANDRONI GIOCATTOLI SIDERMEC: RESTREPO IS 3rd IN SICILY, RUMAC IS 4th IN CROATIA
Another day as a protagonist for Androni Giocattoli Sidermec which does excellent things at the Giro di Sicilia as well as at the Cro Race.
In Sicily in the stage with the treacherous arrival in Caronia (the start from Termini Imerese, the arrival after 180 kilometers), a very good Jhonatan Restrepo (photo Bettiniphoto) who, on the day of the victory of the timeless Valverde, obtains a prestigious third place, behind the Spaniard and Covi, but ahead of the other big names in the RCS race, starting with Velasco and Bardet. More than good the performance of the whole team that places four other riders in the first 22 of the order of arrival with Bais just out of the ten (12th), Cepeda, Ravanelli and Munoz all good to keep in the final. With only the Sant’Agata di Militello-Mascali (180 kilometers) missing at the end of the race, Restrepo is now third in the overall standings, 9” behind the leader Valverde and 2″ behind Covi. The Androni Giocattoli Sidermec at the moment also leads the team classification.
In Croatia another positive day with the fourth place of Josip Rumac in the sprint of the third stage (Primosten-Makarska of 167 kilometers) won by the Belgian Menten. Tomorrow in Croatia fourth stage with the 197 km Zadar-Crikvenica.
