A season to be framed

By 10 October 20172017

With Tre Valli Varesine yesterday Team Unieuro Trevigiani Hemus 1896 closed 2017 season.

The team led by Mirko Rossato from January to October took part in 59 races in 18 different nations for a total of 118 days of racing.
The promising riders with blu-orange jersey took part in 20 professional races of category 1.1, 1.HC, 2.1 and 39 Under 23 races, winning 17 times thanks to 6 different athletes.
Bulgarian Stanimir Cholakov won the first stage and the general classification of International Tour Alexander the Great and GP Levski Sofia, the second stage and Tour de Kosovo GC. Fellow countryman Yordan Andreev won Kicevo Trophy and Bulgaria North Tour third stage; Nicolas Tivani, as well as having graduated road and TT Argentine National Champion, took the second stage of the Bulgaria North Tour and recently has cut with arms raised Ruota d’Oro finish line. First year Portuguese Joao Almeida won Tour de Mersin third stage, the second one of Terre di Toscana and the fourth of Tour of Ukraine. Zahiri Abderrahim won the Moroccan National Championship on the road and the Piedmontese Mattia Viel won Tour de Mersin fourth stage in Turkey.
In addition to these achievements, the team from Treviso celebrated 40 podiums and 106 places in the top 10 thanks to 11 athletes.
These numbers can only make President Ettore Renato Barzi’s budget more than positive: «In the name of the whole UC Trevigiani, I must say that the season just ended leaves us with the smile on our lips. We have achieved the goal of growing an average age group of just 21 years old with a high level calendar. Our promising riders spent 44 days comparing themselves with top-ranked champions and have had 74 days to show off their qualities among Under 23. I thank all the team staff that as always has worked with commitment and professionalism. Now we all deserve a bit of vacation, before we roll the sleeves ahead of next season. As always, year after year, we want to raise the pitch of ambitions».
