Riccò returns for Amstel

The sensation of Tirreno-Adriatico and the Milano-Sanremo, Riccò Riccardo, will return to racing in the Amstel Gold Race, this Sunday, April 22. The 23 year-old rider from Modena will take part in the 252-kilometre race, which is usually finalized on the final ascent of the Cauberg.

"He is going well and the idea for the future is that he will come here and race," said Saunier Duval DS Pietro Algeri to Cyclingnews in Brugge before the start of Ronde van Vlaanderen. The Italian took a break during the first of the major Spring Classics. "Now he will focus on Ardennes Classics - Amstel, Flèche and Liège. Gilberto Simoni will join him to race Flèche and Liège."
