Category: Cycling

The Italian Continental team Area Zero-C’Amico-Bottecchia will start the upcoming Trofeo Laigueglia on Thursday in Liguia, Italy. The team is aiming to start off the 2015 season. Last year, Andrea Pasqualon was third last year. However, it will be more difficult this year as the event has upgraded to UCI 1.HC status and thus has attracted stronger teams and riders.

“For our team the Trofeo Laigueglia will be a significant test to measure up against high level teams and associations,” said sport director Massimo Codol. “Besides, this race will provide an important showcase. We definitely know that we still have a lot of work to do; right now we are just starting out and we have a long season ahead of us. The Laigueglia is a difficult race; this year the route will be even a little bit harder compared to 2014, especially with a more selective final. Last year, with great pride and satisfaction, we managed to make it to the podium in this race.”

The team will include Giorgio Bocchiola, Adriano Brogi, Gabriele Campello, Thomas Capocchi, Paolo Ciavatta, Silvio Giorni, Antonio Parrinello and Nicola Poletti.
