It is a beautiful day, but above all interesting, of emotion and perspective, what the Androni Giocattoli Sidermec lived yesterday at the Tour of the Alps . In the stage with the finish at the Alpe di Pampeago another great test came from Ivan Sosa , who with the third partial place (just like yesterday), just behind the winner Lopez, in Pinot and in front of Froome, gained his head of the classification of the stage race in Trentino.
A result that certainly goes beyond the expectations of the eve for the Colombian climber who also well prepared himself, like his teammates (yesterday on a long runaway Marco Frapporti ), with the retreat in the mountains in Sierra Nevada. Waiting to understand where "Ivanito" can already arrive at this Tour of the Alps, at Androni Giocattoli Sidermec, in the afternoon when there is to be seen the cyclamen shirt of the new leader, remains some important consideration, made of courses and historical appeals.
Yes, because the first reflection is that evidently the streets of the former Giro del Trentino say well to the team led by Gianni Savio, fresh seventy that of "discovery" has made. A recent example, from and of Trentino, is in the rides and in the eyes of Egan Bernal, who last year knitted Androni Giocattoli Sidermec in the short stage race made it clear to the great cycling of what fabric was done, taking away the best jersey young. Going further back with the memory, always talking about South Americans, Gianni Savio certainly can not forget the deeds of the Venezuelan Leonardo Sierra, who in 1991 even the Trentino won it.
