TWO RACES IN ITALY AND CHINA FOR ALE' - CIPOLLINI
The #YellowFluoOrange Team is divided in two groups that will race respectively the GP Liberazione Pink in Rome, and the Tour of Chongming Island UCI Women’s World Tour.
Tomorrow, 25th April the team in the Italian Capital City will be first represented by Marta Bastianelli, winner of the past two editions that have taken place on the Terme di Caracalla Circuit. She will race on her home roads with her teammates Daiva Tuslaite, Anisha Vekemans, Mayuko Hagiwara and Ane Santesteban Gonzalez. Gulnara Fatkullina is the Sports Director. There will be 16 laps of 6 kilometers each to race, for an overall length of 96 kms.
The Tour pf Chongming Island, in China, is the first stage race of the Women’s World Tour in 2018. Fortunato Lacquaniti has selected Chloe Hosking, Anna Trevisi, Soraya Paladin, Karlijn Swinkels and Martina Stefani. This race is divided in three stages for sprinters from the 26th to the 28th April.
The Team Manager Fortunato Lacquaniti declared: We’re going to be in two more races where we can fight for the highest result: Marta is the last winner of the GP Liberazione Pink and we all love this race, which has given us a lot of emotions, especially last year when she dedicated her win to Michele Scarponi. There will be a big group of opponents in China, but our main force is in the group and the teamwork, that has given us really big results.
