Zana will wear the tricolor for the first time on the Sazka Tour

Filippo Zana’s ‘premiere’ in the tricolor jersey will be at the Sazka Tour, a short stage race on Czech soil scheduled for August 4-7.

The Bardiani-CSF-Faizanè rider, to the team channels, said he was both excited and charged at the same time, and emphasized his great desire to get a prominent result right away. “I hope to repay again the support of the team sponsors with a good victory in the tricolor jersey,” he said. “In these weeks I and some of my teammates have been training well in the highlands. Repeating at the Sazka Tour will not be easy, we will be against some World Tour teams and opponents of a very good level, but our goal is definitely to aim to do the best we can to try to give right away a success to the team and to the many sponsors who passionately support us.

Filippo Zana, 23 years old on March 18, won the title of Italian road cycling champion in the road race in Puglia last June 26: at the finish line in Alberobello, he was able to anticipate Lorenzo Rota and Samuele Battistella in a tight sprint.
