With flyweight Venezuelan Josè Rujano continuing to impress, yesterday finishing second on the stage to Limone Piemonte and moving into third overall, Selle Italia-Colombia can only look forward to more of the same in the next two stages to come.
Said direttore sportivo Gianni Savio: "After today's wonderful teamwork of Josè Rujano and Ivan Parra, our team is living a magical moment. We therefore wait with anxiety for the next two days, where we will be able to put it all together."
While Rujano, a two-time winner of the Vuelta al Tachira, has proven himself in the mountains, the 23 year-old is also an excellent time trialist, finishing a close third to Australian time trial champion Nathan O'Neill on the fourth stage of this year's Tour de Langkawi. And with a seven kilometre-long climb in today's 34 km time test, the odds are in his favour.
