GP ALANYA: SECOND TOP 10 OF THE SEASON FOR STEFANO GANDIN
Another good result for Team corratec that made it to the top 10 in the first european race of the season with Stefano Gandin who confirmed his good contidion shown already at Vuelta al Tachira.
The victory went to Alessio Martinelli who was the fastest rider of the breakaway group that attacked on the second of the three laps of a very demanding circuit.
Stefano Gandin, who crashed in the second lap, wasn’t able to follow the attackers but he tried to react during the third lap escaping from a very selected peloton where we had also Davide Baldaccini and Marco Murgano achieving a good 9th place 1’16” behind today’s winner.
“I’m happy with my result – said the veneto rider – the race was harder than what we planned and unfortunately I couldn’t fight for the win as I crashed in the moment where the race exploded wasting a lot of energies to go back in the peloton. In the final part of the race I attacked with some other riders but it was too late. I hope to be luckier in the next races.”
The turkish trip for Team corratec will continue with the Tour of Antalya from the 10th to the 13th of february.
