GOOD BALANCE FOR ANDRONI GIOCATTOLI SIDERMEC AT THE TOUR DU RWANDA
The closing balance of the Tour du Rwanda is good for Androni Giocattoli Sidermec. Good but unfortunate, with Jhonatan Restrepo losing the second place in the overall standing in the last stage due to two punctures. The African race (Uci 2.1) ended yesterday after eight stages.
The Colombian rider from Androni Giocattoli Sidermec has always fought with the best, winning the Kigali-Kwa Mutwe time trial stage. Restrepo, who had already been a great protagonist in the African race last year, has finished in the top-10 seven of the eight stages, then he has closed in fifth place in the general classification with the same time as the fourth classified, just one second from third position. For Androni Giocattoli Sidermec, directed by Leonardo Canciani, good tests also for Santiago Umba that has worn the race leader’s jersey for a day.
About the African race, where the team also received a visit from the ambassador of the delegation of the European Community in Rwanda Nicola Bellomo, comes the comment of the team manager Gianni Savio: «We obtained the third victory of the season with Jhonatan Restrepo, very good at finding a good condition, after passing Covid. The trip to Africa was an interesting experience for all the team members and in particular for the very young Santiago Umba».
