BARDIANI CSF FAIZANÈ 5TH PLACE OF GIOVANNI VISCONTI IN THE 12TH STAGE OF GIRO d’ITALIA.
For the sixth time out of 12 stages, a Bardiani CSF Faizanè rider finishes in the top 10. A tenacious Giovanni Visconti after entering the numerous breakaway of the day made up of 14 athletes is good at staying in the small squad that played for the final victory. Fifth place that gives a good mood to the rider and confirms the great Giro of the team.
Another incredible stage, another important placement for Bardiani CSF Faizanè. After the great performances of Fiorelli, Carboni and Battaglin, is time for Giovanni Visconti to give to the team a great performance on the roads of his Tuscany to seize the breakaway of the day, resulting among the best of the 14 fugitives with a fifth place conquered with condition, experience, determination and resistance when detached from the quartet who remained in the lead, he did not give up to defend an important placement for him and for the team.
These are the words of Giovanni Visconti after the finish-line: ”I was strongly motivated to do good things in this stage that passed on the home roads of Tuscany. At the start my wife came to see me by surprise, obviously I had to say goodbye to her from afar since I am on the bubble, but this gave me even more motivation after many days away from home. I am happy to have taken a breakaway that took an hour and a half to go away and I have inserted myself in every attempt. The leg responded well to the first phase of selection among the 14 initial fugitives, unfortunately right on the last climb I had to give a few tens of seconds to the quartet that went to play the victory but I wanted to hold on to bring this fifth place to team and complete my action in the best possible way. Congratulations to Vendrame for the victory, I notice that he pedaled very well and was the strongest deserving the success. ‘
