GHIROTTO: "THE GOAL IS TO WIN, NOT ONLY DEFEND THE JERSEYS"
“The main events of the 2017 season are approaching, XCO World Cup above all, and we’re looking for better feedbacks about our riders' shape. In Internazionali d'Italia Series' Men Elite series, we are currently on top with Fontana and runner-up with Tempier, but the rivals are close and very competitive, so I think we should aim for victory, rather than playing maths to defend the lead, during the race" Team Bianchi Countervail's team manager Massimo Ghirotto says.
 
JUNIOR TEAM TO RACE IN MONTICHIARI
Junior Team's four riders will feature at Trofeo Delcar as well: Cadet 1 Simone Minotti will start at 9:45 am, Rookies Marco Gozzi, Fiammetta Allocca and Vadim Bodnarenko at 8:35 am.
