Aci Catena, Italy

Mauro Santambrogio's silver medal finish led three BMC Racing Team riders in the top 10 Saturday at the Italian road race national championships.

'Impressive Display'
Santambrogio and teammates Ivan Santaromita and Alessandro Ballan made the select group when the decisive split happened on the seventh of nine laps of a 26.1-kilometer circuit in the 234 km race. At the finish, Giovanni Visconti (Farnese Vini-Neri Sottoli) out-sprinted Santambrogio for the win while Santaromita finished seventh and Ballan was eighth. "It was an impressive display by the BMC Racing Team," Assistant Director Fabio Baldato. "It shows Mauro is on form for the Tour of Austria, Ivan is ready for the Tour de France and Alessandro is ready for his next race."
