Israel – Premier Tech finished off this year’s Tirreno Adriatico on a good note with a strong team performance, which saw Giacomo Nizzolo take second place on the final stage.

Confident in their own abilities and determined to deliver a textbook leadout, the IPT riders were eager to take on Sunday’s stage 7. Everybody knew what they needed to do in the pursuit of the perfect finish to the Italian race and at the end, the team came very close to pulling it off.

“We really wanted to finish off this race with a victory”, Nizzolo said after the finish. “The guys did a really good job with the difficult run-in. At the end, we ended up a little short with the headwind but I went for it and I did my best.”

“It’s a pity we couldn’t get the win because I really wanted us to celebrate after such a good team effort today. In any case, the guys were great and we can be confident for the upcoming races.”
