Fortin: podium and leadership in the points classification in Slovakia
Another important podium for Filippo Fortin in the Okolo Slovenska: in the fourth stage of the Slovak racing the #blackandgreen leader got the third position. The group has been anticipated by Stephan Rabitsch (Felbermayr-Simplon Wels), winner of the stage, and Liam Holohan (Team Wiggins), who were able to anticipate the group for 30”. In the overall sprint, valid for the podium, Filippo Fortin takes home a placement in the first 3 in this edition of the Slovak race.
This great result allows Fortin to win the pois jersey, which means the leadership of the points classification at Okolo Slovenska. Generally speaking, it is the sixth time that Fortin steps up on the podium, he has got eighteen top 10 since he has been riding for the GM Europa Ovini.
“Today I am pleased with the way he team worked – said the team manager Dario Andriotto – in particular I want to congratulate Andrea Ruscetta, Antonio Di Sante and Davide Pacchiardo because they behaved very well at key stages of the race. Of course a bitter taste was left: as I said several times, we always ride to win. The goal is to keep the leadership of the points classification again tomorrow and try to reach the victory dream with Filippo“.
