After passing through the operating room at the beginning of the month to treat a small fracture in his left clavicle that took place during the Tour of Antalya, operated by the prestigious doctor Flavio Terragnoli, the Italian Michele Gazzoli finishes his return to competition. In the last few days he has begun to ride his bicycle normally, without any discomfort.
“A few days ago I started to ride a bike and the sensations were very good. At the moment everything is great and I’m really looking forward to it. I hope to recover the form I had before the fall in a very short time, “says the former European junior champion.
Gazzoli is not going to take long to put on a dorsal again, although this time it will be done by the hand of the Italian team. The cyclist of Brescia has been summoned by the Azzurra to compete, between this Wednesday and next Sunday, in the International Week Coppi and Bartali (Settimana Coppi e Bartali). A call that will allow him to take bottom and to continue adding experiences.
He will not be the only member of the Kometa Cycling Team present in the race, as Stefano Oldani has also been summoned for the same by Davide Cassani and Marino Amadori. In the case of Gazzoli, he joins the team before the loss of the initially named Alessandro Monaco, who is ill. Alessandro Fedeli, Mauro Finetto, Carloalberto Giordani, Jacopo Mosca and Davide Plebani will complete the Italian formation.
Gazzoli and Oldani will have in front of them a varied route where there will be a team time trial (on 13 kilometres, in the second sector of the first day, in Gatteo) and several days with nervous endings due to the proximity of climbs to the finish line (Sogliano al Rubicone, second stage; Forli, third stage; Sassuolo, fifth and last stage).
