Starting with our Stradalli Pro road Team Riders racing at the Tour of Southern Highlands out of our 6 man team we had one sick rider leaving us with 5 who were ready to work for our “GC” Florence. We were off to a great start which was short lived during the Friday night critirium as one of our riders clipped a protruding barricade with his shoulder causing an early end to our chances of victory. Gladly no serious injuries as our team physician managed to get him checked out, and bandaged up ready for the Time Trial. No podium but our team learned a lot about teamwork and perseverance and pushed to the finish with three of our riders finishing in the top 20.
Sad news from one of our riders in the Dominican Republic who crashed at the Vuelta Dominica ending his chances of a podium finish but gladly suffered no major injuries.
