While the world is watching France, the rest of the pro peloton is actually racing – like the Italian teams at the Criterium d’Abruzzo. Here are comments from Commesso and Marzoli….
Commesso: “Today I didn’t start to win this race. But then I got into the right escape and I was feeling really good. And at the end I did a good sprint. Tomorrow? Tomorrow there will be also Danilo (Di Luca), and the team will run for him. So, also I will ride to help him”
Marzoli: “Today I was trying to do the race, but I found on my road a great Commesso, a champion. Now I’ll take a long rest after the tomorrow’s race, also because I’m running fast from last spring. For return on autumn.”
