Colnago bikes keep on winning! After a hugely successful week in France and Italy, David Veilleux of Team Europcar gave Colnago yet another victory at the Tre Valli Varesine classic in Italy after some superb tactics with team leader Thomas Voeckler.
The 24 year-old Canadian showed his form last week by winning a stage and the overall classification of the Mi-Août Bretonne race. He stepped up a level in Italy, adding the Hors Category one-day race to his rapidly growing palmares.
Veilleux won alone on his Colnago, more than a minute clear of the second placed rider. He and Voeckler was part of the decisive attack of the race along with when Voeckler was caught after several strong attacks, Veilleux took his chance, going clear alone with 18km to go. He faced a final lap of a tough finishing circuit but rode his heart out and held off a chase by former Italian national champion Giovanni Visconti to win alone, happy to have landed the biggest victory of his career.
It was only Thomas Voeckler’s second race after the Tour de France, yet the double stage winner and king of the mountains winner showed his class by finishing ninth, while Colnago-CSF Inox team leader Domenico Pozzovivo was one place behind him. Both showed they are ready for an aggressive final part of the 2012 season. It can only mean there are more pro victories to come for Colnago thanks to Team Europcar and Colnago-CSF Inox.
