New Zealander opens European campaign with victory
New Zealand's Matt Scoles opened his 2010 European racing campaign on Sunday with a win for his new professional downhill mountain bike team, Cingolani-Proton. Scoles has now been based in Italy with his new team for two weeks, and he raced at the XI Trophy Terme di Fontecchio, Citta di Castello (Perugia) against a talented Italian field mixed with other international racers.
Scoles defeated Gambirasio Carlo and Francesco Petrucci for the win.
George Brannigan (Ancillotti-Doganaccia) was also racing in his debut for his new 2010 pro team, and put in a ride good enough for fifth place. Brannigan, a second-year junior, is this year following a proven path with Ancillotti that led to a 2009 junior World Championship gold medal for fellow Hawkes Bay athlete Brook MacDonald, and like Scoles, Brannigan also has a full World Cup season ahead of him.
