Ninth place for Álex Martín in Sesto Fiorentino

Per Sempre Alfredo (1.1)
Firenze - Sesto Fiorentino (190,2km)

EOLO KOMETA finishes the week with a top-10 in Per Sempre Alfredo. The team’s climbers tried to perform in the complicated final circuit, marked by rain and crashes, with Álex Martín taking ninth place and the squad showing a great attitude.

From the first kilometres, the goal was to be in the breakaway, to be protagonist and to try to get a good result in this closing race of Italian week classics. However, it was not possible to be in the front group and for that reason the strongest teams were left to control the race. On the final circuit, the youngest riders and climbers did their best to show their strength on the climbs to Collina with the great support of Javi Serrano in the positioning for the decisive part of the race.

Despite trying to attack even on the last climb, EOLO KOMETA managed to filter Álex Martín, Davide Piganzoli and Fernando Tercero in the reduced group of riders that played the sprint in Sesto Fiorentino. The best position, inside the top-10, was for Álex Martín, who could only finish ninth. The attitude and the sensations bring hope for the remaining races in March.

Biagio Conte: “I’m very happy, the team has done a good race, at the beginning we tried to look for the breakaway but it was not possible and we had to wait and see, taking advantage of the work of the WorldTour teams. The race was controlled, Serrano helped his team-mates to be well positioned on the final circuit, facing the hard climb and the technical descent. At the end, on the last lap, we tried to stay with our climbers and although they are not very fast, they were encouraged to start to try to get away from the group. In the end, about 20 riders arrived and Martín was able to finish ninth. I think the attitude was positive and that’s what I take from the race”.
