Starts tomorrow with a 14.3 km TTT the 36th Tour of Trentino, from Riva del Garda to Arco.
Many champions at the start to an edition that promises sparks.
Number 1 for Michele Scarponi who has won in the 2011, searching for a better condition to face at the best the Giro d’ Italia, nearly upon us.
For Lampre-Isd the surprise with the start of Damiano Cunego. He’s looking for his first hunt after the recent crash in Amstel Gold Race.
Growing waiting for Ivan Basso, after the disastrous fall at the recent Paris-Nice. He does not hide the desire to do well to gain confidence for researching a good shape-phase to conquers his third Giro d’ Italia.
There are the outsiders too. A Roman Kreuziger who promises “battle” and Alessandro Ballan in a good shape after the Classics.
We are sure for the starring on the fearsome climbs could be the athletes of Team Columbia-Coldeportes
A spectacular tour that we are sure will not fail to excite us with the arrival of Punta Veleno (traslating it means Poison Peak… 8.5 km climb with an average gradient of 15% and even up to 20%) in the 3rd stage and the Pordoi Pass at the end of the last stage.
Absolutely new for the electronic signature sheet. The competitors will carry out the formality of signature before starting going to put your own name on a tablet. The technology does not spare even the world of cycling.
Let the show begin.
