TOUR OF QINGHAI LAKE 


A long team time trial will open tomorrow the Tour of Qinghai Lake, a traditional date for the team Neri Sottoli - Selle Italia - KTM that aims for good results in the longest stage race of China.

The team, directed by Luca Amoriello, has won three stage in 2016, the edition where we achieved the best results.

Luca Raggio will be the man to follow for the general classification as he ended in 12th place in 2018 and after his good results in Asia in this season. Together with him on the mountain we will see Lorenzo Fortunato and Umberto Marengo who had a very positive june in the european races.

Luca Pacioni, that was very close to win the points classification in 2018 before crashing with two stages to go, will be our main sprinter helped by Simone Bevilacqua and two great team mates like Giuseppe Fonzi and Massimo Rosa
