Maniago. BMW Brand Ambassador Alessandro Zanardi (ITA) has
extended his collection of para-cycling medals with a bronze and a
china medal. At a weekend, a 2018 UCI Para-cycling Road World
Championships took place on Zanardi’s home soil, during Maniago in
Italy. Zanardi – a ten-times universe champion in para-cycling –
competed in 3 races: a particular time-trial on Friday, the
highway competition on Saturday and a team-relay on Sunday.

 

Huge crowds came to Maniago to hearten for a athletes who faced hot
temperatures even in a evenings when a races were held. In
Friday’s particular time trial, Zanardi finished third behind Oscar
Sanchez (USA) and Tim De Vries (NED) to secure a bronze medal. In
Saturday’s highway race, a Italian once again valid that giving adult is
not an choice for him; he was again in row for a podium
position though on a final path became a plant of a pile-up with several
athletes involved. One aspirant crashed into a separator on a tricky
dilemma and bounced behind onto a racing line, attack another athlete.
Zanardi could not equivocate them and afterwards was strike from behind. As a
result, his hand-bike was exceedingly damaged. Zanardi had a gangling front
circle with him in a assistance car. He stopped to change a front
wheel, however had no gangling accessible for a shop-worn right rear
wheel. He though continued a competition with a shop-worn back wheel
and eventually reached a finish in eighth position.

 

The universe championships resolved with a team-relay on Sunday
evening. Zanardi competed in a Italian republic group with his fellow
countrymen Paolo Cecchetto and Luca Mazzone. From start to finish,
they had a stirring conflict with a USA team, and in a end, missed
a bullion award usually by a few centimetres, winning china behind a US squad.

 

“It was a illusory event”, pronounced Zanardi. “I will take home with me
a implausible unrestrained of that outrageous throng that unequivocally astounded me.
I’ve been competing all my life in opposite sports disciplines though I
never felt anything like this. For certain they applauded for all the
athletes though they all had a unequivocally special scream for me and really
pushed me to get a good result. This time, we won a china award in
a team-relay and a bronze award in a time-trial. To a certain
border we had some misfortune, generally in a highway competition though we have
to acknowledge that my opponents were unequivocally clever and most improved prepared
than we thought.”

 

Zanardi now travels to Vallelunga (ITA), where he will continue to
ready for his DTM guest start during Misano (ITA) in 3 weeks’ time
and spend dual days of contrast with his mutated BMW M4 DTM this week.
