Following solid performances at the Vuelta a Murcia and the Settimana Ciclistica Internazionale Coppi-Bartali in March, where he finished third overall in both races, Damiano Cunego will race the Vuelta Ciclista al Pais Vasco, which begins today in Zarautz. The Basque race marks his third stage race of the year before the Tour de Romandie later this month, the latter event being Cunego's final preparation before the Giro d'Italia in May.
"After finishing on the podium at both Murcia and Coppi e Bartali, Damiano will be looking at repeating a good result in the Pais Vasco, where he will be riding with team-mates who will be forming the main part of the team at the Giro d'Italia," said Giuseppe Martinelli, Lampre-Cafitta's directtore sportivo. Martinelli added that Cunego will be eager to show his good form on the two mountain stages in Pais Vasco, but the priority is to continually improve as each day passes.
