Tour de Pologne. Samuele Battistella takes his first WorldTour Top-10
Samuele Battistella has spent a very good week in Poland, for the first time in his career taking a Top-10 placement in the General Classification of a WorldTour stage race. Today the Italian rider finished 7th in the overall standings of the Tour de Pologne.
“I am really happy with the way I spent this week and with my result. Especially because it comes after a difficult period of bad luck and sickness. After I had to abandon Tour de France even before the start, it was not easy to keep my motivation high and to continue working hard for the new goals. So, now I am happy I am here at this point with a solid result in a WorldTour race and with a good form which I can continue building up for the next goals”, – said Samuele Battistella.
