Italian national road championship and time trial

Italian national road championship and time trial

Poor satisfactions for LAMPRE-MERIDA in the Italian championship.

In the road race, the 8 riders )Bono, Cattaneo, Conti, Dodi, Mori, Palini, Pozzato and Wackermann) that were directed by the duo Vicino-Marzano did not entered in the top 10 of the race classification.

Only Mori and Dodi (photo Bettini) completed the race, pedaling in the second chasing group of the head of the race: the new Italian champion is Nibali, who preceded Formolo in the final head to head sprint.

Dodi was 23rd (+4’52″), Mori was 26th.

In the time trial championship, quite good performance by the young athlete Valerio Conti, who obtained the 6th place in his first experience as pro on such a long distance (40,9 km).

Conti recorded a time (54’27″) that was 3’01″ higher than Malori’s winning one.

Cattaneo performance was not so good, because of a lack of energies: he was 10th (+4’11″).
