OPQS to Giro di Lombardia
OPQSlogo2 Omega Pharma – Quick-Step Cycling Team has announced the selection for Giro di Lombardia, a 255km race on October 6th.

“The route for the Lombardia is difficult,” Sport Director Davide Bramati said. “After just 50 kilometers the athletes will take on the long climb at Val Cava which will be highly selective. The walls at Muro di Sormano and the Ghisallo will further sift out the best riders before the final. Also, bad weather and rain could be a factor like they were last year. We’re lining up at the starting line with a good squad in which everyone will get the chance to play their own hands. We have motivated athletes like Pieter Serry and Serge Pauwels, the latter who had a great World Championship last week, and experienced riders like Sylvain Chavanel, Peter Velits and Dries Devenyns, all of them in one of the last races with our jersey. The squad is completed by two young athletes, Gianluca Brambilla and Michal Kwiatkowski. We are going to try to stay ahead with our men and arrive at the base of the Ghisallo with a good number of athletes to try to figure as contenders in the final.”
