Pietermaritzburg. BMW Brand Ambassador Alessandro Zanardi
(ITA) resolved a 2017 UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships
in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa, by winning his tenth universe title.
The third foe for him on a report during this eventuality was the
group send on Sunday. Zanardi and his team-mates Paolo Cecchetto and
Luca Mazzone, combining a Italian inhabitant team, dominated a race
and successfully shielded their universe title.
The group send was hold over 9 laps of a 1.09 kilometre track
(overall stretch 9.8 kilometres). The Italian contingent lived adult to the
purpose of being a favourite. Zanardi, Cecchetto and Mazzone controlled
a movement and were unthreatened on their approach to a bullion medal. In
a end, they finished a stretch in a time of 16:31.734 minutes
and had an advantage of 6 seconds over a USA’s second placed team.
In a 3 Pietermaritzburg competitions he took partial in, Zanardi
claimed dual universe titles, in a time hearing and a group relay, as
good as a china award in a highway race.
“I am intensely happy and joyous about winning another bullion medal, my
tenth overall,” pronounced Zanardi. “I am also really happy as we pennyless a
record as a Italian para-cycling group and won some-more bullion medals at
this eventuality than ever before. It is illusory for a whole team.”
“If we sum adult a eventuality from my personal view: it was great,” Zanardi
continued. “What can we say? we claimed dual some-more bullion medals. In the
highway race, we ‘only’ finished second, though it was really tighten and to see
that we am still this rival during my age is kind of remarkable. I
have to be unapproachable of that – and now we try to redeem a small bit
since we have some other very, really critical events watchful for me.”
There is, however, not most time for Zanardi to rest as these
subsequent events will be as shortly as after this month: dual long-distance
triathlons. In dual weeks’ time, he will tackle a eventuality in Pula,
Croatia (17th September), and on 30th September,
he will competition a triathlon in Barcelona (ESP), one of the
highlights of a year for him.
