GREAT SUMMER START FOR CARRERA ATHLETES
Blackhills 100, South Dakota (USA)
Carrera’s ambassador in the world of extreme running, the ultra marathon runner Paolo Venturini has joined the 100 km, which winds along the legendary route 89, the path the pioneers travelled through going westwards over a hundred years ago. A fascinating difficult journey, with a drop of more than 6,000 m., which put a great strain on Paolo. Despite the many hardships, the Paduan athlete achieved an excellent fourth placing with a time of 14h 50min.
Brixia Tour, Brescia
Daniele Colli wins the red Jersey, in the point ranking, thanks to the great placings, both individually, twice second, and on team with Fabio Felline, who won the second stage.
A really good performance for Daniele, who, just a few months after the delicate surgery on his knee, has shown a totally recovered fitness and an absolute competitiveness.
