Hersh on the podium!
Matteo Rotondi gives the first podium of the season to GM Europa Ovini – Vini Fantini: the Under 23 team comes back home with an excellent third place obtained at the end of a difficult sprint at Coppa del Grano, a race that ended on a terrible wall uphill with a slope of more than 15%. An excellent result for the team, which gives even more value to the fourth place obtained on Saturday, March 24th, at Giro delle Balze.
Given Matteo’s good form, during Coppa del Grano all the GM Europa Ovini – Vini Fantini riders worked together to enable Matteo Rotondi to show off in the final race. On the last climb, before the final wall, Rotondi was on the uphill with the best, trying to go away downhill but without success. The race ended with a difficult sprint and the rider of the GM Europa Ovini – Vini Fantini succeeded in getting yhe third place behind Mirco Sartori (Mastromarco Sensi) and Stefano Oldani (Team Colpack).
“I’m really happy for this third place – explains Rotondi after the race – because I knew I was feeling good. The finish was very challenging, but once again I had some good feeling uphill. These two placings are fundamental for the whole team and I hope to be able to confirm them in the next races “.
Directeur sportiv Dmitry Nikandrov is also satisfied: “Matteo was very good, the fourth place on Saturday and the third today are two excellent results, but also the rest of the team is making excellent improvements, and this proves we are on the right road”.
