Team Cinelli Chrome took all 3 spots on the podium at the FallesCrit La Vall d’Uixo in Spain this weekend. The first test on the International Fixed Crit circuit was a resounding success for the new Team Cinelli Chrome.
"The initial plan was to attack around the 5th or 6th lap." Said Team Manager Enrico Biganzoli. " Davide Viganò was really encouraged by his qualifying time but I assured him that any attacks needed to be assisted by the more experienced fixed crit riders otherwise there was risk of getting into trouble." During the third lap there was a fall that created a gap between Davide and Ignazio and the rest of the group. The 2 Italians attacked and were alone for the rest of the race while the remaining Team Cinelli Chrome riders spent their time fending off would be attacks from the chase group.
"As the race was coming to a close we found ourselves bunched up in the chase group and I urged Paolo to attack, at that moment I envisioned an all yellow podium, and that's what we got!" Said Biganzoli after the victory.
The race was the first step in an important season for Team Cinelli Chrome who are feeling encouraged by the performance of the 2 new entries on the roster Viganò and Moser.
