After taking part to 2012 edition of the “Classic of the Dead Leaves”, characterized by heavy rain, the Escarabajos enjoyed a sunny day to review the key points of the RCS Sport race, and particularly the dreadful Muro di Sormano.
“It was very important to review the route – Sports Director Valerio Tebaldi explained -, as last year the terrible weather affected the whole race, and riding those routes in ideal condition was very useful, even for those who already rode il Lombardia in the past.”
“It was a very good training, with strong intensity: as usual, the perspective of a prestigious race like Il Lombardia gives riders a special motivation. In particulary, Darwin Atapuma looks ecstatic after being selected for the Worlds, and Fabio Duarte and Robinson Chalapud looked very concentrated as well,” Tebaldi stated.
Team Colombia’s next fixture is scheduled on next Saturday, September 21st, in Italy, at GP Costa degli Etruschi.
