Comment

Walter Zini is very happy right now with his team and looks forward to the tour, "We start with the goal of doing well - commented the sports director - even if we can't go for a win in the general classification. But we have some fast gilrs and they can get good placement: in the last stages with the GC almost decided we may also seek to enter in the breakaways to search a stage win"

Francesco Fabbri said of the event, "This initiative is very important - says Francesco Fabbri - because there will be about 65 children of local schools: education in road bike is a very dear theme for us and the federation and so we will be helped also by the Regional Committee. Children will be able to learn all the rules and the meaning of signs in a small circuit that we are preparing thanks to the support of traffic police"
