Hersh very close to the podium with Francesca Pisciali
Born to Win G20 Boiler Parts Ambedo got an important result with the 4th place by Francesca Pisciali at the Tuscany Trophy Città di Prato on June 16th
She was part of the 9 riders (together with Frapporti, Cipriani, Silvestri, Bortolotti, Beggin, Van Neck Gasparini e Valsecchi) who started the breakaway after 20 km and who succeeded in gaining up to 6 minutes.
Frapporti dominated over the group but our Francesca founded the strength to anticipate the sprint 2 km from the arrival “I’m very happy of the ride even if the 4thplace of course left a bitter taste in my mouth, but the most important thing is to improve ride after ride. We started quietly and then around 15-20Km from the start after the sprint of Vittoria Guzzini we jostled and then a group of 9 broke away. We were from different Teams, at the end the collaboration broke and we lost 3 minutes advantage (from 6 to 3 minutes only). As I’m not a great sprinter I tried to go away on the last climb at 2km from the finish to avoid the sprint but I didn’t succeed in creating the gap. Anyway positive result, I’m very happy that I could add another good result to the Team. We are a small reality compared to others but race after race we are proving that we are always competitive also thanks to the positive relationships inside the whole Team ”
