Sonny Colbrelli wins 2016 Coppa Agostoni

The Race: Here's the report I received from winner Sonny Colbrelli's Bardiani-CSF team.

Bardiani-CSF’s leader Sonny Colbrelli has won today the 70th edition of Coppa Agostoni. In the final sprint of the Italia road race, Colbrelli has been the strongest leaving behind Ulissi (Lampre-Merida) and Gavazzi (Androni-Sidermec). Fifth success for the Italian rider in 2016 (14th as professional) and tenth for the #GreenTeam.

“Yesterday’s second and third place at Coppa Bernocchi left us little disappointed” said Colbrelli. “Today was a big chance and I didn’t want to lose it. Winning in Italy is always a great joy and I’m really glad also for my team”.

“It was a hard race, first for the route and second for the rain we suffered in the first part of the race. We needed patience, my teammates did a great effort managing the hottest parts of the race. In the finale Androni-Sidermec did a great job preparing for the sprint. I chose to follow Gavazzi’s wheel and just waiting the last 300 meters. I’m happy I left behind strong riders like Francesco and Diego”.

Colbrelli will return to race with Bardiani-CSF on September 20 at Giro della Toscana - Memorial Martini, followed by Coppa Sabatini, Tre Valli Varesine and Gran Piemonte. Before these races, Colbrelli will attend the European road race Championship in Plumelec on Sunday 18th wearing the Italian Team jersey.

“I’m so happy for this call, it’s a great honor for me. I said to CT Cassani I’m feeling good and I’m at his disposal. We’ll be at the start with a strong team and I want to give my contribution. It could be the chance to make this season more and more special”.
