After the meeting of Castagneto Carducci it is again run for the Androni Giocattoli Sidermec. The Italian Champions will be competing at the Tour de Langkawi in Malaysia. Eight stages in the program: the start tomorrow with Kangar-Kulim and the conclusion Sunday, March 25 with the fraction that will end in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur. Thursday is scheduled to land at Cameron Highlands.
Good participation in the race, officially opened yesterday with the presentation of the teams. Androni Giocattoli Sidermec, which is led by team manager Gianni Savio and sports director Alessandro Spezialetti in Malaysia, will race with Manuel Belletti, Alessandro Bisolti, Luca Chirico, Mattia Frapporti, Matteo Malucelli and Kevin Rivera. The Malaysian race at Androni Giocattoli Sidermec marks the return of Manuel Belletti after the unfortunate fall in Argentina in January. The Romagnolo rider will immediately try to be the protagonist again in the sprints, like Matteo Malucelli, who in the sprint this year has behaved more than good in Venezuela, winning two stages, and in Colombia.
Historically the Tour de Langkawi, it should be remembered, says well to the teams led by Savio, who in the past have always reported excellent results. And motivations, conditions and premises this year also certainly put the Androni Giocattoli Sidermec in the front row to be once again the protagonist.
