The Tour of the Alps for the Androni Giocattoli Sidermec starts well. In the first part of the thirty race for the Italian champions came the brilliant third place of the Colombian Ivan Sosa. Difficult stage is the 134-kilometer Arco-Folgaria, with a selective finish. The fraction, which saw the success of the Spanish from Astana Bilbao, proposed an enterprising and good Sosa. In the group of the best in the last part of the stage, with the other Androni Giocattoli Sidermec Fausto Masnada, the young Colombian in the last kilometer tried to mend the lengthening of Bilbao just before, missing the hook for the inezia of six seconds. The other Astana Luis Leon Sanchez, who had thrown himself on his wheel to protect his friend's action, crossed the finish line. Sosa preceded by a few seconds the big ones of the race Pinot and Froome, with Aru tenth.
The 20-year-old Colombian talent, who could hardly manage to make the most beautiful birthday present to the team manager Gianni Savio, at the Tour of the Alps now also leads the ranking of young people.
The stage, it must be remembered, before the grand finale had proposed a long escape in which he had not failed to be seen also the other Androni Giocattoli Sidermec Davide Ballerini.
