Andrea Vendrame: "It's a good sign
"It was a complicated sprint and I answered present. It's a good sign after a 15-day altitude course on the Pordoi. The form is not yet optimal but the sensations are improving every day. It's excellent for the morale and it validates the work done these last weeks. Tomorrow, there is still a stage that can be favorable to me. I have some important objectives between now and the end of the season like the European Championships, with the Italian team, in Trento, two hours from my home (September 12), the Bretagne Classic (August 29) or the Trois Vallées Varésines (October 6)."[/su_quote]
Andrea Vendrame's third place is his eighth top 10 finish since the beginning of the season, including two victories (stage 12 of the Giro d'Italia and stage 1 of the Route d'Occitanie).
