Another one of our trump card - it's Jani Brajkovic, who had a difficult first half of the season. He experienced some difficulties, which were the result of his recent health problems. I hope that Trentino, and then Romandie, will give him self-confidence, the psychological aspect is very important to achieve big goals. Gasparotto's victory will also help, which showed that we were working not for nothing, it's a significant boost for the team spirit. "
Gasparotto hastened himself to share his joy with everyone: "I want to thank all my teammates, this general result, without them it would have been unattainable. I especially want to thank Bozich and Gavazzi, who sacrificed his personal hopes for the team during the race, as well as for his leadership Bontempi course of the race. Special thanks to my friends and my family, who are the closest people to me, despite the fact that I often have to leave them, their faith and their sacrifices in such days shall be paid in full.
Third place in 2010, the year has strengthened my belief that this race I am able, I longed to improve this achievement. Opponents had a lot, everyone was very dangerous, especially BMC, whose commitment was excellent. I remembered the finish on the Kauberg in 2010, that in the final meters i need to keep a hefty supply of power, this year I have considered it and that's why could not defeat. I celebrated the victory with my friends and now ready to flash Wallonia and Liege, I believe that it is ready for 100% of the new race. "
Regarding Flash Wallonia sportdirektor Guido Bontempi said about the settings for the race: "Now that we are moving in the Ardennes, terrain varies greatly, we are waiting for the ups 2-3 kilometers in length, we have to storm the three famous Wall of Huy hardest. I can not apply a lot about the planned strategy and tactics of the race, but I can say that our main hopes vested in Gasparotto, Iglinskiy and Kiserlovski. "
Also throw this one in, too:http://www.velonation.com/News/ID/11628/Giuseppe-Martinelli-Giro-dItalia-course-is-ideal-for-Roman-Kreuziger.aspx
“Seven of the nine are chosen,” he explained. “The Czech Kreuziger, the Swede [Fredrik] Kessiakof, the Estonian [Tanel] Kangert, the Russian [Evgeni] Petrov, the Belgian [Kevin] Seeldrayers, the Kazakh [Alexsandr] Dyachenko, the Italian [Paolo] Tiralongo.
It's like cheesy 80s action movie where mercs from around the world (each representing overtly racist national stereotype) fight the baddies
Very good team for the mountains though.
