The Roman rider manages to conquer sixth place in the sprint, in the 1st stage of the Giro di Sicilia with arrival in Agrigento won by Finn Fisher-Black
Agrigento, 11 April 2023 – Excellent result for the Team Corratec in the first stage of the 159km Giro di Sicilia which took the riders from Marsala to Agrigento. The stage characterized by a breakaway that started from the first km of the race and subsequently resumed in the final climb that led to the arrival in Agrigento, ended with an excellent 6th place for Valerio Conti behind Alexey Lutsenko, in an uphill finish characterized by the numerous forcings of the UAE Team Emirates, which led Finn Fisher-Black to victory
The Roman rider of Team Corratec was very able to manage the effort and not be surprised when the peloton broke into several pieces due to the high pace at which the last bump of the day was tackled.
“I think I got an excellent result today – these are the words of Valerio Conti immediately after the arrival – despite the stage being very nervous and characterized by the wind, I managed to get to the beginning of the climb without taking any risks. From there I I’m focused and despite it was faced at a good pace, I managed to get a 6th place, behind many good riders, who bode well for the next stages”
