BARDIANI CSF FAIZANÈ: READY TO RIDE THE GIRO DI SICILIA.
While the Tour of Turkey is on going, part of the team landed in Sicily this morning to take part in the 4 stages of the Giro di Sicilia. Filippo Fiorelli at the start, in his home race, together with Alessandro Tonelli and Luca Covili. The line-up is completed by three neo-pro riders as in #GreenTeam philosophy. They will be Omar El Gouzi, Luca Rastelli and Alessio Nieri.
From Tuesday 12th to Friday 15th of April Bardiani CSF Faizanè will be at the start of the Giro di Sicilia. In the team-car Roberto Reverberi and Pino Toni, will lead a line-up of 6 riders, with 3 neo-pros.
At the start there will be the home-rider, Filippo Fiorelli, certainly very motivated on the roads of his Sicily. At his side a team man of experience and substance like Alessandro Tonelli and the climber Luca Covili. 3 neo-pros athletes complete the line-up, but thanks to the #GreenTeam they already have made some important race experiences. Luca Rastelli will be there, after his breakaway in the Amstel Gold Race, also the young climber Omar El Gouzi at the start, while the youngest of the six riders will be Alessio Nieri, born in 2001.
The 4 stages of the Giro di Sicilia will see a rather demanding route, which will presumably leave room for fast wheels only in the first fraction with finish-line in Bagheria, while the general classification will be uncertain until the last stage, with the last finish-line on Mount Etna.
Finally, there is excellent TV coverage of the event which can be followed live on the Eurosport and Raisport channels, starting with the first stage of this Tuesday 12 April, which is scheduled to run from 1:50 pm until approximately 3:30 pm.
