Monday will be an historical day for the team Neri Sottoli – Selle Italia – KTM as we will make our debut in the USA in 11 years of history at the Tour of Utah.
One prologue and six stages will be the menu of a race considered as the hardest one of North America and the team directed by Luca Scinto and Francesco Frassi will ride with a special kit that puts on the spotlight the logo of Meter Group, sponsor of our team from the last season with the headquartes in Pullman, Washington.
Luca Scinto, that last year flied to the USA to join a Gran Fondo organized by Meter Group, explains the choice.
“The Tour of Utah is one of the most important races of the second part of the season, for the first time we’ve got the invitation and so we are glad to do well. Meter Group is a special sponsor for us and so we decided to tribute this partnership like this. We brought a very competitive team with Dayer Quintana that is doing very well especially on the high altitude mountains. It’s a great chance for everyone and so we hope to take it”
Together with the colombian rider the team will have two valid helpers on the mountains like Manuel Bongiorno and Edoardo Zardini, who both already have rode this race before, with Umberto Marengo and Simone Velasco ready for the puncheurs sprints. The line up is completed by two strong all rounders like Lorenzo Fortunato and Sebastian Schonberger.
