SELLE SAN MARCO-TREK TAKES THE FIRST SUCCESS OF THE SEASON!
The Italian Mtb Team Mtb Selle San Marco-Trek takes the first success of the season at the “XC CITTA’ DI CARRE’-TROFEO DI PRIMAVERA”. Last Sunday they celebrated the first podium with Johnny Cattaneo, who now gets also the win. Together with his team-mate Damiano Ferraro, they kept the control of all the race, taking at the finish a solo victory and a deserved third place.
A great result, but maybe there was a chance to do better than this, says Ferraro, who is happy for his first podium of the season even if he regrets to have missed the second place: “I am very happy both for me and for the team. Just a bitterness, because of a mechanical problem during the final part of the race, that caused me to lose positions when I was closed to the second place, then I had to chase my rivals and I recovered until the third place. Luckily I took the podium, but I think that to finish first and second would have been the top for our team. It was not an easy race: I would say more like a marathon than a cross-country, but very nice and fun, despite the cold”.
Selle San Marco-Trek begins so optimally its firts season in mountain bike racing world as one of its leading men, Johnny Cattaneo, who after recovering from some physical problems, took a second place last Sunday and a victory, the first one of the season, both for him and for the team: “I am very pleased for this success, even more because I took it in a race where for us it is like to be at home. Damiano took the third place so we must be really happy for this start of the season and confident on further. I'm sure we can do great things”.
