Notable placement for Martin Marcellusi who hits the Top10, "In the final I didn't have the strength to make the sprint."

Denying the prediction of the bunch sprint, an Eschborn-Frankfurt run at a very high pace, the decisive action for Green Project Bardiani-CSF Faizanè with 50km to go, where Martin Marcellusi attacked alone reaching a maximum lead of 1’30”, the Roman rider was caught but he was very good at hooking up with the dragnet of 10 escapees arrived at the finish line with a handful of seconds of advantage. In the main group, Marcellusi’s teammates were instrumental in breaking the changes. The narrow sprint was won by Søren Kragh Andersen.

Marcellusi says, “In the final I didn’t have the strength to make the sprint, I spent so much in the first breakaway attempt, a 10th place in such an important race has its own weight, behind my teammates broke the gears and did a great job and I thank them, we couldn’t ask for better before the start of the Giro d’Italia, I feel great physically.
