EOLO-KOMETA Team (Italy) - Press Release: Giro d’Italia 2021 - Stage 14: Cittadella – Monte Zoncolan (205 km).
Lorenzo Fortunato put his name to it, but the signature was a group one. A signature of a whole project, with twenty cyclists and many people working to assist them, which was born a few months ago in the ProTeam category. Lorenzo Fortunato won this Saturday on the summit of the Monte Zoncolan, he released the palmares of the EOLO-KOMETA Cycling Team and certified the fulfilment of a dream for a structure that faces the Corsa Rosa after the invitation of his organization. That invitation was a responsibility. And the ambitious objective was to win a stage. A difficult undertaking, very complicated, because winning is always difficult. But the goal was clear and they had worked hard to achieve it. Lorenzo Fortunato realised that desire and unleashed the euphoria.
Lorenzo Fortunato won on the summit of Monte Zoncolan, where the breakaway triumphed once again. The rider from Bologna and Vincenzo Albanese were part of a breakaway of eleven riders that was formed in the first kilometres. The eleven managed to build up a lead of more than eight minutes, which put the race into the limbo of uncertainty. Could the breakaway make it? Albanese was incommensurable in assisting Fortunato. The eleven of them passed the Forcella Monte Rest, the one with the twisty descent.
