Tireless Pantano leads Team Colombia in Luxembourg
logo-Colombia An exciting Giro d’Italia is just behind us, but there’s little time to rest, as the season goes on for Team Colombia’s Escarabajos. Just three days removed from the Corsa Rosa, an eight-man line-up directed by Oscar Pellicioli and Oliverio Rincon will take the start at the Skoda Tour de Luxembourg, with the classic 2,55 km evening prologue to get things started in Luxembourg city.

Luxembourg will see the return to competitions for Juan Pablo Valencia, Darwin Pantoja, Jonathan Paredes, Edward Diaz and Juan Esteban Arango, with Edwin Avila getting back to action as well after being forced to leave the Giro after stage 9. In addition, two of the strong Giro d’Italia performers will try to make the best of the good swing and condition found on the streets of Italy: Jarlinson Pantano and Robinson Chalapud.

“Both Pantano and Chalapud finished the Giro in progression, and they are well motivated to exploit this chance – Sports Director Oscar Pellicioli said – while I expect big enthusiasm also from the rest of the line-up, as they get back to races after some time, and will definitely be raring to go. Luxembourg might not have big mountains, but features some nervous routes, and atypical fast men like Avila and Arango could find excellent terrain to perform”

Skoda Tour de Luxembourg (June 4-8)

Juan Esteban Arango, Edwin Avila, Robinson Chalapud, Edward Diaz, Jarlinson Pantano, Darwin Pantoja, Jonathan Paredes, Juan Pablo Valencia.
