|HUNTING BIG RESULTS AT THE TOUR DE L’ARDECHE
The team is back to race after the experience at the Giro di Toscana – Memorial Michela Fanini. We are now in France, between the Massif Central and the Alps, where the Team Servetto – Piumate – Beltrami TSA will race from the 13th and 19th September. The line-up for the Tour de l’Ardeche is composed by Anna Potokina, Kseniia Dobrynina, Francesca Cauz, Sara Casasola, Yevgeniya Vysotska and Marketa Hajkova, with Dario Rossino as Team Manager. This race is one of the hardest stage races before the 2019 Road World Championships in Yorkshire (England) at the end of the month.
The French race is composed by seven stages: 127 kms on the opening day between Saint-Paul-le-Jaune to Aubenas, including the hard climb of the Col de Peyre and the final steep climb. The stage 2 goes from mende to the 1414 of the Mont Lozere with a selection of hard climbs for 139 kms. Again 127 kms on the following day for the stage 3 between Avignon and Apt for another tricky day. The 4th stage, 138 kms from Savasse to Montboucher, looks easier but it is again full of tricks, same as the 5th one from Saint-Georges-les-Bains to Saint-Felicien. The penultimate stage, 111 kms from Saint-Sauveur-de-Montagut to Beauchaste, has a descending final from the climb to Col de Mure. The big final, short but intense, is on the 87 kms from Chomerac to Privas, where the overall win will be celebrate with the leader of the general classification.
“The Tour de l’Ardeche is a very important race for us” – says the Team manager Dario Rossino – “We have been one of the biggest teams last year, as we gave “fire and flames” to the race from the start to its finish, especially with Kseniia Dobrynina. We hope to do the same even in 2019, with a look to the World Championships.”
