After yesterday’s racing at Trofeo Piva, Development Team DSM were back in action today at Giro del Belvedere. Taking place on two local circuits the opening half of the day was on flatter, albeit still rolling, terrain, whereas the second half of the day saw the bunch take on a more challenging hilly circuit.
Attacks flew from the flag drop with the team very active in trying to make the move. Eventually after a stinging attack, Gianmarco Garofoli was able to get clear alongside one other rider. The duo managed to build up a gap of almost two minutes but the peloton didn’t allow their gap to grow out any further. As the kilometres ticked by their advantage thinned and heading into the final 40 kilometres the race was back together. The race then split on the challenging final circuit but unfortunately the team didn’t have the legs to compete for a top result on the day.
