After finishing in second position in 2011, the former Italian Champion hits the victory. So came the first “foreign” win of the season for yellow-fluo girls.
Last year was Emma Johansson to burn on sprint Monia Baccaille.
This year the roles were reversed and the italian athlete has taken his revenge,
cutting the line in first position and forcing the Swedish to second place.
This time the sprint of Monia Baccaille was perfect
and the Grand Prix de Dottignies, after a year of waiting, it’s in its way,
with a sprint well prepared, thanks to an excellent team-work,
and masterfully directed. So arrives in Belgium land, the first win of the season
outside the Italian borders for the girls of MCipollini - Giambenini - Gauss Team
who, after many good placings, conquer the top step of the podium.
They do it at the end of a race lived, once again, as protagonists,
with yellow-fluo color to make the race. Marta Bastianelli after the start,
then Alessandra Borchi and Marta Tagliaferro have tried the sprint,
also to test the condition of the enemy, in a hard race consists of a series
of attacks and counterattacks.Failed all attempts to escape, the train
of MCipollini-Giambenini-Gauss goes into action to put Monia Baccaille
in the best position for the sprint. She doesn’t mistake and take
a well deserved rematch.“Finally: after the third and second place
I managed to reach the top step of the podium in this race.
I have to thank the whole team that has worked very well and put me
in the ideal conditions for the sprint”. Very pleased the Sports Director
Louisiana Pegoraro: “We went in Belgium to come back home
with something important. Yesterday, in the Ronde van Vlaanderen,
we have not succeeded, but today we have repaid our fans.
After so many excellent performances, not crowned by the final triumph,
this result is the recognition of our work.It was important for us
to get a victory, after the double Zorzi-Jasinska in Vaiano,
and to start winning even abroad of Italy. Surely this success
will give us the right charge to point to other important results”.
