"Pozzato worked really hard in recent weeks and showed he could compete with the best despite not riding Tirreno. That’s impressive. He, Fedi and all the young guys in the team rode well and everyone finished."

Filippo Pozzato is the last Italian to win Milan-San Remo. He won the Primavera in 2006. This weekend he crossed the finish line in 8th place and was the best of the home nation in the chaotic sprint finish inon Via Roma.

 

Southeast directeur sportif Luca Scinto is proud of his team. Pozzato finished with the best riders and Andrea Fedi who attacked alone on the Poggio, finished 22nd in the same time as French winner Arnaud Démare (FDJ).

 

"I’m often critical of Pippo but I’m proud of his and the team’s performance in Milan-San Remo," directeur sportif Luca Scinto told Cyclingnews. "He worked really hard in recent weeks and showed he could compete with the best despite not riding Tirreno. That’s impressive. He, Fedi and all the young guys in the team rode well and everyone finished."

 

"Fedi was actually hoping to go on the Cipressa but couldn't find a way through when Stannard and Visconti went, so he went on the Poggio", he added. "That takes balls and great form to do it and it was a real pity that none of the big-name riders went with him, otherwise we could have seen a very different finale to Milan-San Remo."

 

Filippo Pozzato and his teammates will now do Dwars door Vlaanderen on Wednesday, E3 Harelbeke on Friday and then the Three Days of De Panne before the Tour of Flanders. 

 

"Milan-San Remo has boosted our optimism about what we can di in Belgium, it's just a real pity we didn’t get a place in Paris-Roubaix because Pippo has often done well there. I’m not one for empty coincidences but Pippo finished sixth in Milan-San Remo when he was with us in 2012 and then he was second in the Tour of Flanders. There’s no reason why that can’t happen again", Scinto concluded.
