Local Ticino Sports Director Simone Pedrazzini will be driving the Mitsubishi team car. These are the team’s prospects, in his words. “The GP Canton d’Argovie-Gippingen usually features an outcome in the final sprint. We are ready for this with a pack of impressive sprinters made up of Kristoff, Consonni, Ferrari and Swift. Consonni could also make himself a threat by getting into long attacks. Troia, Polanc and Ganna will be important riders for every race situation”.
