Minister Botero to travel to Italy In the final Giro d’Italia week
logo-Colombia It was a quiet second rest day for Team Colombia: a light two-hour training and much time for recovery for Claudio Corti’s Escarabajos, who completed the second week of the Giro d’Italia in good conditions, after having dealt with a number of tests so far.



“The second week was very demanding – Corti explained – both due to the route and the weather conditions, but all of our guys are growing, gaining experience day by day, and that is good to see. In yesterday’s stage, we managed to take a strong fifth with Duarte, but we had 4 men in the Maglia Rosa group until 2 km to go: in the final week, we will try to show off consistently and do something important, pursuing the stage win that would make even better a good Giro d’Italia so far.”



Right at the end of the final week, Team Colombia will be pleased to receive the visit of the most important Colombian sports authority, Coldeportes’ Director Andres Botero: the Colombian minister of sports will land in Italy in the evening on Friday May 24th, and will join the Escarabajos during the two final Giro stages.



The rest day also gave Robinson Chalapud the chance to undergo x-rays to evaluate the consequences of Saturday’s severe crash. Fortunately, the exam did not reveal any ribs fracture, and despite some contusions, the climber was able to restart the race with the 16th stage, Valloire-Ivrea of 238 km.
