Fran Contador – GM EOLO-KOMETA Cycling Team: “We arrive at this Giro d’Italia with the right team, a team ready for this race. A perfect team adapted to the route that awaits us. I also believe that the presence of a Hungarian rider like Fetter, with the start in Budapest, is something very important for us and for our sponsor Kometa”.
Ivan Basso – Sport Manager EOLO-KOMETA Cycling Team: “We arrive at the Giro exactly as we wanted to arrive, with a team that has trained well and has performed well in recent months running very well in all the races that he did. This is definitely the result of the awareness gained from an extra year together. The message is only one: humility, feet on the ground, because this is the first rule at the Giro d’Italia. This is the race of the year: we have 21 days in which we’ll have to prove that we’ve earned the invitation and we’ll have to try to make ourselves sought and found by the fans. We don’t put limits on ourselves, but we want to start from last year’s result and improve”.
Stefano Zanatta – DS EOLO-KOMETA Cycling Team: “This is the second Giro d’Italia for our team and we arrive with a little bit more awareness, and the certainty to have a good team and to have chosen the best performers to be present at a great stage like this. We’ll put all our strength, our enthusiasm to try to give our best to try at least to repeat the great performance of last year and fight for a stage success that would be the crowning achievement of a work and a path that we are pursuing to make this team grow. Feet on the ground, with the conviction that at the end of the Giro we will have done a lot of talk about EOLO-KOMETA”.
