BAHRAIN Merida Team again controlled the 158.2km last stage of the Tour of Slovenia and Sonny Colbrelli was frst in the peloton to Novo Mesto as planned.
Unfortunately, riders from Merida team members split one lap before the fnish line and Colbrelli was ffth some 500m to fnish.
Sprint in downtown Novo Mesto was not easy on the cobblestone cubes and Colbrelli fnished third and lost the expected jersey.
Giovanni Visconti performed well on Tour of Slovenia and fnished the race second in general classifcation.
“I am happy with my performance even if I didn’t win. The team worked very well and now that I proved my physical condition, I can hardly wait for National Championship with high morale and motivation,” said Visconti.
