Team Guru PX wins again

Team Guru Planet X rider Alfonso Falzarano flees the army to bag his first win of the season aboard our Nanolight Guru Team bike at the Granfondo Inkospor Casciana Terme.

In an exciting finish in the picturesque village of Casciana Terme in the heart of Tuscany, Alfonso Falzarano of Team Guru Planet X steamed past Team Army rider Vincenzo Pisani with a mere 200m to go to take the win with a time of 3:14:20, beating a disconsolate Pisani by 11 seconds.

On paper the event didn't seem too demanding, but the relatively easy course was made particularly difficult due to the strong wind that accompanied the participants throughout the day.

A frenetic start of the race saw an immediate escape of three riders who were hastily reeled back in on the second climb of the day by another group of 7, including Falzarano and Pisani. After waiting for team-mate Ivan Fanelli to join the front group Falzarano had to react quickly to Pisani's repeated attacks.

As the race wore on Pisani upped the pace and gained a 20 second advantage on the breakaway on the penultimate ascent, only to have his progress halted by strong wind near the summit allowing Falzarano and Team Parkpre's Diego Genovesi to catch up with only 4km to go. After a cagey last couple of kilometres the tenacious Falzarano launched into a powerful attack, sprinting past Pisani in the last 200m to cross the line with arms aloft, celebrating his first win of the season.

Congratulations to Alfonso and the rest of the Team Guru Planet X team for this fantastic result.
