What's Cool In Road Cycling

Italian Champs: Rider Comments

Commesso: “I’m really happy for this victory. I’ve had a very bad year, but the team helped me a lot. Also at this race they helped me during the laps. Everyone of my team, also Danilo (Di Luca). But this victory isn’t mine, it’s for my wife. She has a lot of trouble now, and this is for her”.

Casagrande: “The condition is good. I tried to save myself for the final because I knew that Commesso was the fastest. But he won, and…it’s ok anyway. Now I won’t run Tour de France because there isn’t the time for prepare it. I will restart at August and I’ll run
Vuelta to win it”.

Frigo: “I arrived at the end of the Giro in good condition, but I didn’t run it very well. I watched my performances stage by stage and I wasn’t at the same condition of last year. Anyway this italian championship for me was a test for the Tour de France, and…I did it very well. Now I’ll start the Tour at max, day by day, and I’ll see what
will happen”.

Pozzato: “I attacked too early and so I was tired at the last lap. But, Im really young and so I’m also really happy for my performance. I showed what I am, and I’m sure I’ll do better next year. Now I have some offers from some other teams, and in 10 days I’ll decide. But I’ll prefer to stay in Italy.”

It seems that Pozzato received an offer from Fassa Bortolo. As he’d like to stay in Italy and Fassa is a team near his home.

Denis Lunghi will leave next year Team Colpack for Alessio.
