Triple activity for Team corratec – Selle Italia in a week that will see the entire roster involved
Montecatini Terme, 12 September 2023 – One of the most intense weeks kicks off tomorrow for Team corratec – Selle Italia, which will be engaged on three fronts with great expectations, especially for the home races, Giro della Toscana and Coppa Sabatini.
The riders and the entire team, given the double Tuscan commitment, have been hosted in Montecatini Terme, confirming the continuation of the project that for the past two years has seen the locality, a Unesco site, support the only professional team based in Tuscany.
Leading the team will be Francesco Frassi with the grand return of Valerio Conti, after the double injury that limited his season. Among the protagonists, there will also be Kyrylo Tsarenko, a stagiaire, who won on Sunday in the last of the three Challenge races in Puglia.
At the start of both races Davide Baldaccini, Marco Murgano, and Veljko Stojnic while Andrii Ponomar and Karel Vacek will be replaced on Thursday by Lorenzo Quartucci and Nicolas Tivani.

From 14 to 17 the Tour of Taihu Lake will also be run, four stages for the return of this Chinese race to the calendar four years after the last edition.
