Yet another placement, yet another podium in the ninth and penultimate fraction of the Venezuelan race, where the Colombian Ivan Sosa hit the second place , preceded by an old acquaintance Androni Sidermec as Josè Serpa.
José Serpa won after a long escape the fraction of 123 kilometers that arrived at Cerro Cristo Rey. Sosa, author of a grand finale, arrived at 10 "from the winner: perhaps a few hundred meters more would have been enough to resume his compatriot. Sixth has closed the other Androni Sidermec Kevin Rivera at 1'51 "from the winner.
In the tenth and last fraction of San Cristobal (115 kilometers), it has instead centered the third position Raffaello Bonusi , once again good at entering the decisive action of the day.
Bonusi closed at 27 "from the winner, with Luca Chirico sixth (at 4'25"), Ivan Sosa seventh (at 4'26 ") and Kevin Rivera ninth (at 4'26").
Now the spotlight moves to Argentina, where the team is busy at the Vuelta in San Juan
