Another young rider, in the continuation of the green line for Bardiani CSF Faizanè. In addition to the previously announced Kevin Rivera, Tomas Trainini and Samuele Zoccarato, a new twenty-three year old Colombian under coming from Giotti Victoria team is ready to face the new season with the team. His name is Johnatan Canaveral.
Johnatan Canaveral, twenty-three years old Colombian born in Pereira, is the fourth reinforcement wanted by the Bardiani CSF Faizanè team for the 2021 and 2022 seasons. In the current season he has shown good qualities in the line-up led by Stefano Giuliani, the Giotti Victoria team. For him a good Turul Romanei, where he finished 8th in the general classification, 2 times in the top 5 of the stage and second in the GPM ranking, but above all excellent experiences in the most demanding Italian races in which he participated, such as the Memorial Pantani, closed in 13 Position and Coppi and Bartali where, just as in the previous season, he proved to be a valid element for stage races. A talent already demonstrated among under23 categories with the third place at the Under23 national championships caught in 2017.
The Colombian athlete is going to increase the roster of new signings in view of 2021. All the four riders already announced by the team are between 20 and 23 years old, thus giving continuity to the team’s green line focused on the launch of young prospective riders.
These are the words of Canaveral when signing the new contract:
“I am really happy with this step which is the realization of a dream. Being able to play my chances in a team that could participate in the Giro d’Italia is a great goal for me. Obviously I want to give my contribution in all races, bringing podiums and maybe victories to the whole team if possible. I also thank Giuliani and the Giotti team who have allowed me to grow in these months in Italy. “
