OLIVIERO BOSATELLI WIN THE TOR DES GÉANTS® 2016

Wed, 14/09/2016 - 14:52 -- Chiara Jaccod

Oliviero Bosatelli, Oli Bosa, for his fans, inflamed the Tor and put the opponents out. It was inevitable as he is fireman by trade. The athlete, the Giant indeed, living in Gandino 25Km from Bergamo, went into overdrive at Cogne after 106 kilometres of race and didn’t downshift anymore. “At full pelt” his colleagues say. They arrived from Bergamo nearly with sirens wailing. The forty-seven Lombard athlete, renamed “Popeye”, reached the finish line in Via Roma in the heart of Courmayeur, with an overall race time of 75,10 hours. Not half bad considering the distance of 330km to cover as well as the difference in altitude of 24thousand meters. Thus, more than a caterpillar he was a Formula 1 car.

While we are writing the trailer running for the second place is still far away, around 5 hours. However Oscar Perez is still one of the most acclaimed. He will mount the podium for the third time (one victory and two second places). Spain showed sympathy and muscles, since three Spaniards are among the top five. In addition to Perez, in fact, Julio Cernuda Aldecoa and Pablo Criado are expected at the finish line. And what about the sixth place? Standing ovation and hats off because it’s reserved for a woman, and what a woman: Lisa Borzani, thirty-six Padua, which already collected two second places and a new victory today.
