Reggio Calabria, April 16, 2023 – Team corratec achieves a great result in the Giro della Provincia Metropolitana di Reggio Calabria, a 2.1 race that was making its return to the calendar after an 11-year absence. 

The race was selective from the start due to the weather and the high pace imposed from the first kilometers by the peloton. One of the first riders to try was Stefano Gandin, in the company of Martin Marcellusi, but the duo’s action was stopped along the first climb of the day, Piano Maschera, which was tackled at such a high speed that there were only 33 ridersleft  in the peloton including Valerio Conti, Nicolas Tivani and Veljko Stojnic.

The next climb, Monte Sant’Elia, saw the peloton thinning out even more under the attacks of Valerio Conti, who formed a group of 11 riders, with the other Team corratec rider Nicolas Tivani, who would then go to play for the victory on the Lungomare Falcomatà.

Conti tried for a second time in the last 10 km, along with Lorenzo Tonelli, but Kevin Colleoni’s forcing ensured that the peloton came back compact.

In the sprint Jhonatan Restrepo took the lead at 150 meters resisting the return of our Tivani who had to settle for second place, the team’s first podium of the season. Mirko Maestri ended in 3rd place.

A few seconds after crossing the finish line, Nicolas Tivani said, “I am satisfied with the performance, although there is some regret for how the final sprint went. It was a very hard race from the beginning, it took very good legs to stay in front and I am happy with how I went. We did a great team effort and this result is to be shared with everyone. It gives morale for the upcoming races and is a good sign because it means we are growing.”

Upcoming events for Team corratec will be the Tour of the Alps and Belgrade Banjaluka.
