Having won his first race of the season last week at the Tour de Slovénie, Sonny Colbrelli (Bardiani-CSF) doubled his 2014 win tally win a sprint victory over Grega Bole (Vini-Fantini-Nippo) at the UCI 1.1 Giro dell'Appennino.

"The victory in Slovenia gave me the breakthrough and today I had an important confirmation for my future," Sonny Colbrelli said after the win. "We believe in success with me and the whole team that was once again fantastic. In the end we did a perfect race. I took the wheel of Bole with 250 meters to go and it went well.

"The whole team is going strong, morale is high and I am convinced that we can make a great Italian Championship."

"We knew we were the favourites but respect the odds is always difficult," Reverberi said. "We were able to make the race we had planned.

"In the last kilometre, Colbrelli was very good to wait for the right time because the finish was uphill and not a mere flat road. He won with a margin and this demonstrates what we have always said, had he not only unlock that potential then everything would be easier."
