GREEN PROJECT BARDIANI-CSF FAIZANÈ: 10th PLACE FOR FIORELLI AT THE VENETO CLASSIC.
Good performance from the Sicilian, in the Top 10 in the last race of the season, he had already achieved a 6th place at the Serenissima Gravel.
With the Veneto Classic, the 2023 season of the Green Project Bardiani-CSF Faizanè officially comes to an end. Another placement for Filippo Fiorelli, finishing 10th at the Bassano del Grappa finish line. The #greenteam rider had already secured a 6th place at the Serenissima Gravel two days ago. After the final ascent of La Tisa, the group came back together, containing 4 riders in green jerseys: Luca Covili, Alex Tolio, Martin Marcellusi, and, of course, Filippo Fiorelli. Former #greenteam member Filippo Zana’s attack on the Diesel Farm climb at -10 kilometers fragmented the group, taking Formolo and Hirschi with him. Fiorelli gritted his teeth and crossed the finish line with the chasing group of the best.
His words: “It wasn’t a race perfectly suited to my characteristics, but the desire to do well and the motivation were certainly not lacking. I feel in good form at this moment. I can consider myself satisfied with the race I’ve done, and I thank the team. Now, let’s focus on working well for the 2024 season. I want to make a turning point in my career.”
