4th stage – Greccio-Tortoreto (219 km)

mperative: try, always. And try to make our mark on a race that sees us facing better equipped teams, more experienced riders. And try, however, to surprise. Because we are the EOLO KOMETA. And even today, we were the protagonists of a stage that exploded in the finale with the big boys doing battle. Ready, go: and Davide Bais went on the breakaway again, exactly as he has done in all the previous stages so much so that after today he totaled 490 kilometers on the attack in three days of racing. His goal was to show off the (beautiful) green jersey and try to score some points on the last KOM to defend it. The breakaway was caught by the peloton before the climbs valid for points, but no one was able to snatch the green jersey from Bais’s shoulders, who then took the podium again.

But it didn’t end there. Because on the last climb, with the big guys looking each other in the eyes to get their hands on the victory, our Lorenzo Fortunato tried the big hit by attacking with 2 km to go: the group then caught him, but Lorenzo’s head and legs give us hope for the future. “I tried,” Fortu said, “and this time it didn’t go well but for sure it will go well next time. Already tomorrow there is a stage more suitable for me, and also on Saturday: I will try again.”

Happy with the day also the ds Stefano Zanatta: “The team moved well, Davide was very good to enter the breakaway even if it is already the third day that he goes on the attack: we hoped to get at least to the first KOM but the group caught them, then in the final Fortunato stayed in the first group and tried to anticipate the sprint. He made a good action, also today we honored the race and showed that the team is well.”
