We will be there. One more time. Once again, for the third time in our history, EOLO KOMETA will be at the start of the Giro d’Italia: the most beautiful race, the one that in 2021 gave us the crazy joy of victory on Mount Zoncolan, the one that saw our Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso triumph.
The organizers have made official the teams that will be at the start on May 6 from Fossacesia Marina for the first stage of a Giro that promises to be tough and beautiful: 4,448.6 total kilometers, 51,300 meters of elevation gain, 21 stages designed among the beauties of Italy. Being there is an immense pride, it is the result of serious work and constant growth, it is a great victory but at the same time it is a huge responsibility: and as of now we say that we will do everything, to deserve this honor.
Fran Contador, GM EOLO KOMETA Cycling Team: “”Knowing that we will return to race a Grand Tour, that for the third year in a row we will participate in the Giro d’Italia, is without a doubt the best news we could have received. We feel ready, motivated and excited to respond to the trust of the organizers, who are counting on us once again and we are confident that we will be up to the task. Happy and confident to honor the race, to get the best possible results, but most importantly to demonstrate our unstoppable growth”.
Ivan Basso: “I consider this invitation a prize that every year we try to win with results but also with the growth and strengthening of the team. We have set up a group that can be competitive for such an important commitment, but now it is already time to leave aside the chatter and get to work to deserve this invitation on the field. I will only add that the next Giro d’Italia will be special, as there will be a stage that will arrive in the city where I was born, raised and where I live”.
