Now I’m going to stay in training camp for the next two days, then I’ll be at home for some days and then I’ll be back to race in Trofeo Laigueglia.' "

" 'An interesting race, that I used to perform a good training at a high pace', using these words Cunego commented his seasonal debut.

"Sport director Piovani described the debuts by Malori and Ulissi: 'Maybe because he was racing on his hometown roads, Ulissi was more excited that Malori, who had already had experience in pro world last year as trainee. Anyway, they both performed a good race, working well for the team target'. Then Piovani underlined his appreciation for the Petacchi and the whole team: 'Today the team showed another time that the feeling among team mates his already good: Petacchi was perfect in finalize the work. Alessandro is already in a good fit, but his biggest weapon is his strong will to win.' "
