What's Cool In Road Cycling

Sabatini, Emilia and Beghelli to wrap up the season

The final week of Team Colombia’s third season has started. The Escarabajos will face three Italian one-day races to wrap up their season: Coppa Sabatini (Friday October 9th), Giro dell’Emilia (Saturday October 11th) and Trofeo Beghelli (Sunday October 12th), the latter won in 2013 by Team Colombia’s Leonardo Duque.

Coppa Sabatini features the classic final circuit to be repeated 6 times, characterized by the Peccioli hill where two years ago Fabio Duarte kicked out to claim an impressive win. The Giro dell’Emilia route is characterized by a tough finale on the San Luca climb in Bologna (ramps up to 20% gradient) to be repeated 5 times, whilst at the GP Beghelli, despite the Zappolino climb to be repeated 10 times, a selected group has every chance to contest the win in a sprint.

For Giro dell’Emilia and Trofeo Beghelli, Sports Director Oscar Pellicioli will field a 8-man line-up: Robinson Chalapud, Fabio Duarte, Jarlinson Pantano, Carlos Julian Quintero, Duber Quintero, Miguel Angel Rubiano, Juan Pablo Valencia and Rodolfo Torres, whilst at the Coppa Sabatini, when Teams will ride with 9 men, youngster Edward Diaz will join the team.

“The season is getting to a close, and we are asking the guys for one last effort”, Pellicioli explained. – “The Coppa Sabatini is suited to puncheurs, whilst the Giro dell’Emilia is a very difficult race. Our goal is to give the best to end the season on a good note”.
