What's Cool In Road Cycling

The Escarabajos aim for a big goal in Poland

Following an encouraging campaign in Slovenie and Luxembourg, the season of Team Colombia continues at Course Cycliste de Solidarnosc, Polish stage race scheduled from June 26th to 29th. The route consists of 4 undulated stages, suitable for strong and long-distance riders.

Team will be allowed to line-up only six units for this race, and Sports Directors Valerio Tebaldi and Oliverio Rincon will rely on a group of riders who recently got back to Italy after an altitude training stint in Colombia in May: Alexis Camacho, Michael Rodriguez, Juan Esteban Arango, Juan Pablo Valencia, Duber Quintero and Jeffry Romero. Romero himself will be trying to repeat to follow after showing in good swing in Slovenia, definitely going for a strong result in Poland.

“These guys reported back from Colombia in good conditions, and already showed that in their comeback races,” Valerio Tebaldi stated. “The route features a huge number of hills and climbs, and is suited for long-distance riders: I think we got the right qualities and conditions to go for a big goal.”

Course Cycliste of Solidarnosc will round out the first half of the season for the Escarabajos, who will be back in July at the Giro dell’Appennino (July 14th) and at the Tour of Polonie (July 27– August 3), a prestigious event included in the World Tour calendar.

Course Cycliste de Solidarnosc (June 26-29) Line-up:
Juan Esteban Arango, Alexis Camacho, Duber Quintero, Michael Rodriguez, Jeffry Romero, Juan Pablo Valencia.

Sports Director: Valerio Tebaldi, Oliverio Rincon.
