With the Richmond World Championships over, there are just two weeks left until the end of the season, and Team Colombia-Coldeportes will return to racing on Wednesday, September 30th, in Tre Valli Varesine, the first of the four races that are going to take place this week. After this appointment, the Escarabajos will ride Milano-Torino (October 1st) and Gran Piemonte (October 2nd), before finishing with the icing on the cake, Il Lombardia (October 4th), the season’s last World Tour race.

In Tre Valli Varesine, the last event of the Trittico Lombardo, Sports Directors Oscar Pellicioli and Marco Corti will count on Daniel Martinez, Miguel Angel Rubiano and Brayan Ramirez, who showed a good condition in the last races ahead of the Worlds, to try and get a good result. Joining them in the race which will see the peloton travel from Busto Arsizio to Varese will be Camilo Castiblanco, Fabio Duarte, Leonardo Duque, Carlos Mario Ramirez and Juan Pablo Valencia.

The following day, Rodolfo Torres will be the main weapon of Sports Director Valerio Tebaldi on Colle di Superga, the traditional finish of Milano-Torino, the oldest race in the calendar. Torres will be supported by Brayan Ramirez,Camilo Castiblanco, Fabio Duarte, Carlos Mario Ramirez, Cayetano Sarmiento, Juan Pablo Valencia and stagiaireFelix Baron.

Finally, the curtain will fall at the most difficult Giro di Lombardia in years in terms of altitude gain. Eighth Escarabajos will leave Bergamo with the destination Como, in a 245 km-long adventure: Alex Cano, Camilo Castiblanco, Fabio Duarte, Daniel Martinez, Carlos Julian Quintero, Brayan Ramirez, Miguel Angel Rubiano and Rodolfo Torres.

 

“Il Lombardia isn’t just a renowned race for its enormous prestige, a Monument, but also a race that’s very important for us, as it takes place near our headquarters”, Tebaldi explained. “We did a recon of the course, and it’s a very tough one, as always: for this reason, we selected the riders that give us the most confidence at this moment, and we wish to honor the last World Tour race of the season.”
