Stefano Garzelli of Acqua & Sapone Caffè Mokambo were prevented from riding the Giro d'Italia this year, but at least the Italian can celebrate his leading of the UCI Europe ProTour. Not only is Garzelli ahead in the individual classification, but his team is also leading the teams' ranking.
The squad had taken out six third-place results, 15 runner-up spots and 11 victories, for a total of 32 podium spots.
The team announced that Garzelli spent the winter preparing for the Giro, but used his stellar form instead to take out four victories already.
Garzelli will get to wear the leader's jersey in his next race, which will be the Tour de Slovénie, from June 10 to 14. This will kick off Garzelli's second part of the season.
