DRONE HOPPER ANDRONI GIOCATTOLI: BEFORE THE LAST WEEK, ANOTHER GOOD TESFAZION
Last day of rest in the Giro d’Italia, waiting for the mountains for the last week. And speaking of mountains yesterday at the uphill finish line in Cogne, great protagonist for Drone Hopper Androni Giocattoli was Natnael Tesfazion (photo www.sirotti.it). The Eritrean rider, who turns 23 just today, entered the day’s maxi breakaway and then remained among the best until the finish. In Cogne, where Giulio Ciccone won, Tesfazion finished with an excellent 7th place.
Here is the comment of the general manager Gianni Savio on yesterday’s race: «For a young rider of 23, two top ten finishes in the challenging stages of the Giro d’Italia are a good result. If, as probable, Natalino Tesfazion is hired by a great team, it would be a satisfaction for us, because he would be the seventh rider launched in the World Tour by our team in recent years».
Tomorrow for the Giro, with Carapaz always in the pink jersey, climbing again with Salò-Aprica.
