"In the last stage we managed the situation, trying not to risk anything along the last descent - explains Debertolis, understandably satisfied - As a team, sorry for the misfortune that targeted Johnny Cattaneo, forced to retire in mid-week due of a bad fall. We console ourselves with this victory in the master category, which is still prestigious given the level of the race and the value of the rivals. We knew that success was within our reach, but as expected, we had to suffer until the end. This is why the victory is doubly beautiful ".
