Santambrogio Runner-Up At Giro della Toscana

19. June 2011

Arezzo, Italy

Mauro Santambrogio scored his best result of the season for the BMC Racing Team Sunday with runner-up at the Giro della Toscana.

Great Teamwork
Sprinting into a headwind, Santambrogio led out the long sprint, but was passed in the final 50 meters by race winner Dan Martin (Garmin-Cervélo). "We made a plan, we stuck to the plan, the team rode well and Mauro will go to the (Italian) nationals with great morale," BMC Racing Team Assistant Director Max Sciandri said. Twice, the BMC Racing Team impressively closed the gap to breakaways to ultimately ensure Santambrogio made the small, decisive group that came to the finish together. "Martin Kohler and Ivan Santaromita did a fantastic job in closing a two-minute gap to 25 seconds once we got onto the finish circuit," Sciandri said.
