Double feature of Italian races with Coppa Agostoni and Coppa Bernocchi
Riabushenko and Consonni key players for UAE Team Emirates
A September rich in Italian racing for UAE Team Emirates begins with two historic races in the Italian calendar: Coppa Agostoni (Saturday, 14 September) and the Coppa Bernocchi (Sunday, September 15).
The UAE team, will be directed by DS Marco Marzano (Ita) who will take charge at both races:
– Simone Consonni (Ita)
– Nicolas Dalla Valle (Ita)
– Roberto Ferrari (Ita)
– Manuele Mori (Ita)
– Simone Petilli (Ita)
– Aleksandr Riabushenko (Blr)
The prospects of the team in the words of sport director Marzano: “A complete rider such as Riabushenko might have a good chance to do well in the Coppa Agostoni, and will rely on the support on the tough sections by Petilli. If the race stays together more, the speed of Consonni will also be a factor.
The Coppa Bernocchi is even better suited to Consonni, who would have Ferrari to count on in the sprint.
The two races are good opportunities for the stagiaire Della Valle to show his quality. ”
