An amazing experience. This was the Tour of Utah of the team Neri Sottoli – Selle Italia – KTM that has honoured the invitation and debut in the USA with the stage win of Umberto Marengo and with the 3rd place of Simone Velasco.
In the final stage, where the group had to climb the terrible Empire Pass, the team of Luca Scinto and Francesco Frassi has tried again with Umberto Marengo, Dayer Quintana and Edoardo Zardini in the breakaway that was caught on the final climb.
The stage win went to Joe Dombrowski while the GC was for Ben Hermans who was the strongest rider on the mountains.
Manuel Bongiorno did another good performance ending in 16th place retaining the 13th in the general classification and confirming his improvements in this part of the season.
Very satisfied of the Tour of Utah the SD Luca Scinto“It was great to see how the american fans were cheering up for us on the roads. We achieved some important results and we showed again our value. Our riders are not scared to go in the breakaways or to control the race when we think that we can win. Our local sponsors like Meter Group have comunicated us all their enthusiasm for our performances and they were proud of how the riders have brought their name on the special jerseys that we have created for this race. We hope to be back here next year and we want to thank Kevin Livingston and all the organization for the amazing treatment in these days”
