BARDIANI CSF FAIZANÈ: GIULIO PELLIZZARI IS THE NEW KOM LEADER OF THE GIRO CICLISTICO DELLA VALLE D’AOSTA.
Another attacking race for the very young rider, born in 2003, of Bardiani CSF Faizanè who closes 5th in today stage and he is the new leader of the KOM classification. Tomorrow he will be at the start with the special jersey of the leader of climbers.
Giulio Pellizzari is the new leader of the climbers of the Giro Ciclistico della Valle d’Aosta, one of the most prestigious world competitions reserved to Under23 riders. The 18-year-old from Marche, in his first year with Bardiani CSF Faizanè and among the youngest riders at the start, was once again the protagonist of the attack in today’s stage, where he won the 4 GPM of the day before finishing in fifth position on the finish-line of Aosta.
Top5 in the stage and new leadership in the climbers ranking that will allow him to be at the start of the fourth stage with the prestigious special jersey. For Giulio Pellizzari another leap forward also in the general classification and in the ranking of best young riders in which he was already in the top 5 this morning and best Italian in the ranking.
These are the words of Giulio Pellizzari: “I am very happy with this jersey won today, even though I know that here are the best climbers in the world and it will not be easy to keep it. In the Giro d’Italia U23 I was unable to catch this jersey, but I went really close in one stage, just one point behind Lenny Martinez. Today I managed to win the 4 GPM of the day, reaching this special jersey. In the U23 Giro I was to the start even though I wasn’t feeling very well and it was tough, here I have a better condition, not yet to be with the very first of the general classification, but fine enough to fight for the stage victory and why not for a prestigious jersey like this one that I will wear tomorrow. Thanks to the team, from the Sports Directors, to the masseurs who give us support with excellent indications and lots of essential feed and drink zones in this heat to overcome the long climbs.”
