Astana Lastest news

GIRO D’ITALIA. STAGE 12. A BUNCH SPRINT, WAITING FOR THE MOUNTAINS.

All the Astana Pro Team riders avoided risks and finished safely in the front group.

The longest stage of the Giro seemed to be good for the sprinters and the victory went to a sprinter. In particular to the most regular sprinter of this Giro, the Colombian Fernando Gaviria who already won in Cagliari and Messina and who actually wears the Ciclamino Jersey of the Points classification.

The Astana Pro Team guys, avoided any risk in the fast final and concluded in the bunch (first Cataldo 37th at the same time of the winner).

The GC is unchanged with the Dutch Tom Domoulin still in the lead.

One of the most promising athlete among the Astana Pro Team roster, is the Danish Jesper Hansen.

Jesper is 26 and he is at the first year wearing the Astana Pro Team colours.

The Danish is at the debut at the Giro and he looks positive to the next stages: “I’m feeling good and I’m sure we can do pretty things in the last week as a Team – commented Hansen – I tried to attack not far from the finish on the Etna mountain but it didn’t go as I hoped… anyway I’m satisfied because my condition is growing and the Team is doing good in the last few stages.”

“I will try to enter in a breakaway for sure and then, if I will not be lucky, I will be glad and work for my team mates better positioned in the GC, Dario Cataldo and Tanel Kangert – continued the Danish – the Giro is a beautiful race and I’m so happy we found every day super sunshine until now.”

“In my fourth year as a pro, I would love to leave a good sign in this Giro, maybe catching the ‘right breakaway’… anycase, even if I will give a good help to my team mates, I’ll be satisfied because this is a very great experience" concluded Hansen.

Tomorrow, thirteenth stage of the Corsa Rosa, probably the easiest, from Reggio Emilia to Tortona, 167 km entirely flat. The only unknown might be the weather because rain is expected.
