KONYCHEV and Italy dominate the 4th round of the UCI U23 Nations Cup round.
6 May 2019
This Saturday, May 4, the 4th round of the UCI U23 Nations Cup was held in France. In very humid weather, 180 km of hilly terrain were on the programme of the “Etoile d’Or” between Lussac-les-Châteaux and Civaux.
The morning breakaway was caught up in the last kilometers, there were many crashes in a winding final and it was the Italian Alexander KONYCHEV who sprinted to victory over a peloton of about sixty riders.
His team-mates Michele GAZZOLI Michele (3rd), Alberto Dainese (4th) and Antonio Puppio (10th) took top honours and enabled Italy to win the team round. Germany is now taking the lead in the challenge.
