Tre Valli Varesine (1.Pro)
Busto Arsizio-Varese (196.3 km)
The race of the people, the race of the colors, the race of the places that grew up with cycling. Here is the Tre Valli, the home race because here our Ivan Basso was born and here our main sponsor Eolo was born. A race that everyone likes, and in fact the strongest come here to race: Pogacar won, just to like it….
EOLO-KOMETA tried, fielding Lorenzo Fortunato and his leg put on display at the Giro dell’Emilia. Unfortunately, bad luck got in the way by dropping our Fortu: a bump in the knee, some peeling. Nothing serious, nothing to jeopardize his participation in the Giro di Lombardia, nothing to worry about: but his Tre Valli did not go as he hoped. In the home race, applause for our Mark Christian: protagonist of the day’s breakaway that reached the 5′ lead. It was very difficult,” he said, “to catch the breakaway because the pace was so high from the first kilometers. Then, I gave everything to stay in front as long as possible. Beautiful, pedaling with all these people.”
And here, then, is Fortunato: “I fell, I wasn’t particularly hurt but from that moment I suffered a lot, too much. And the leg didn’t turn as I expected anymore, as it did at the Giro dell’Emilia. But I’m very, very confident for the Giro di Lombardia: the head, it’s there.”
