Pro Belvedere’s organizers are working hard to put everything into place in view of the Easter Monday international race scheduled in Villa di Cordignano on April 17th, 2017
Giro del Belvedere is considered an important event of the youth cycling calendar thanks to its history, tradition and technical significance, with the particularity to represent a springboard for the pro’ career. The 79th edition of the Easter Monday U23 international event, scheduled April 17th, 2017, will continue this leitmotiv with the clash between the best prospects in the world who will contest the success on the finish line in Villa di Cordignano (Treviso, Northern Italy).
In the last March, Patrick Muller clinched victory with a powerful sprint on the slightly sloping finish ahead of the Italian prospect Nicola Bagioli – new pro’ rider with the Team Nippo-Vini Fantini – and Croatian Josip Rumac. The 20-year-old Swiss athlete was the latest to enter in a prestigious list of winners including athletes like Maurizio Fondriest, Silvio Martinello, Ivan Gotti, Sacha Modolo and Stefan Kueng.
The Pro Belvedere organizers work to preserve the historical significance of the race with the goal to increase the international prestige, giving to the athletes a technical and tough course characterized by the classic Montaner climb in Borgo Canalet.
“The last edition was spectacular, one of the most uncertain of the last years – commented the leader of the organizing committee Gianfranco Carlet – but we’re not content. We want to grow further to improve the quality of the event making our event more attractive on the international scale”.
