Italian Championship ITT U23
Camaiore – Corsanico (20 km)
The week in which most of the National Cycling Championships are held started this Wednesday with a satisfaction for the continental Kometa Cycling Team from the hand of its rider Antonio Puppio. The Italian cyclist won the bronze medal in the U23 time trial, an award that recognises his great abilities in this discipline.
Puppio finished in 27:57 to cover the 20 kilometres between the start in Camaiore and the finish in Corsanico, three seconds behind Giovanni Aleotti’s silver medal. The gold medal went to Matteo Sobrero, who rolled at an average of 44.6 km / h and distanced both Aleotti and Puppio in more than a minute.
Until the arrival of Sobrero, the last of the riders to start his participation, the Italian of the Kometa Cycling Team had the second best time record. Puppio was the twenty-second of the 27 riders taking part.
“I am very satisfied with my performance. My performance was very good and my sensations were magnificent. Sobrero today was simply from another planet. It was really superior”, explained the rider after such a good result.
