Circuito Nazionale Gravitalia – Rd #4 BORMIO Final
It was a real splendid day yesterday for the Round#4 of Circuito Nazionale Gravitalia which took place in Bormio (SO), among breathtaking views of white mountain peaks surrounding Bormio 2000.
The race course started from 2,600 meters. It was a longe and fast course, totally built with bulldozers, with a technical central part and lots of parabolic curves. The ground progressively had dried from mud, residual of a prior snowfall, becoming faster and more demanding.
Oscar Härnström (Exceptio Sport Commençal) was the best at understanding the course and marking the lower time painting fabulous curves and letting his power off on the pedals. He won the final in Bormio with the time of 4’56″90, improving his yesterday’s winning seeding run of more than 6 seconds.
Excellent performance by Carlo Caire (AB Devinci Italy) who got second place and gained precious points for the rankings.
The Italian Champion Francesco Colombo (AB Devinci Italy) closed in third position, half second distant from his team mate. With the points gained here, he reinforced his leadership in the circuit with great chances of winning the title.
Francesco Petrucci (Team Cingolani) finished fourth, victim of a mistake who threw him off the course. Stefano Mezzetta (360 Degrees) made the fifth place after a long hotseat who awarded him for being the first closing under 5’10″.
Veronika Widmann (ABC Egna Neumarkt) won the final run with a wonderful 5’39″59 despite the injury occured during the seeding run.
Eleonora Farina (Mangusta Bike) finished in second place, only one hundredth of second slower than Veronika. The pro season in the Women category has never been so competitive as this year. Anyhow Eleonora has kept the jersery of leader of the circuit. Third place for Elisabetta Canovi (Team Cingolani).
Sara Mologni (Scout Nukeproof), our mechanic for Bormio Bike, won here for our great satisfaction and confirming her control over the category Women Amateur.
Among the Amateru Men, Paolo Alleva (Scout Nukeproof) closed with best time. Fabrizio Dragoni (Alessi Racing) got the second place, keeping the leader jersey. Third place for Luca Fusani (GS Pro-M),.
