At “Appennino”, Colombia Closes First Part of the Season
logo-Colombia Final fixture ahead of the “summer break” for Team Colombia: after competing in Slovenia and France, the Team is headed to the Giro dell’Appennino, in Italy, looking to provide a strong display before travelling to Colombia to spend three weeks of training next to their families.

Sports Directors Valerio Tebaldi and Oliverio Rincon will field a very strong team, ready to climb up the ascents that will decide the Italian race, starting with classic Passo della Bocchetta.

In his seventh start in this race, Miguel Angel Rubiano will rely on his experience on the 190 km distance from Novi Ligure to Genova, joined by Fabio Duarte, Robinson Chalapud and Jarlinson Pantano – just back from the Tour of Slovenia – Rodolfo Torres, Edward Diaz, Jonathan Paredes and Darwin Pantoja, who rode the Route du Sud along with Rubiano.

“We are just off a disappointing weekend, and we really want to ride a good Appennino ahead of the break,” Sports Director Valerio Tebaldi explained. “The final climb terminates with 25 km to go, but the Giro dell’Appennino always gets decided on the uphill, and I expect the field to be strongly reduced on the Bocchetta Pass already. We have several good climbers in the line-up, so hopefully we can get to the finale with some options.”

Giro dell’Appennino (June 24th)

Line’s up: Robinson Chalapud, Edward Diaz, Fabio Duarte, Jarlinson Pantano, Darwin Pantoja, Jonathan Paredes, Miguel Angel Rubiano, Rodolfo Torres

Sports Directors: Valerio Tebaldi, Oliverio Rincon.
