THE PPRTEAM AT THE GRAND PRIX EVENT IN ROME WITH FALDUM AS FAST AS A FORMULA ONE CAR

 

The burning pavement as in a Formula One start, and Faldum who left all his contenders behind at the Grand Prix event in Rome

 

The 2016 first event of the Grand Prix Series held in Rome, was as amazing as a Formula One race and at the top step of the men’s podium there was our Hungarian athlete Gabor Faldum

 

In an interview, Laura Berretta tells us that Gabor had some difficulties during the bike, because of the hot weather conditions. However, performed excellently in the run and, with an amazing final 500 meters rush, left no space to Steinwandter who came second.

 

Even Ferlazzo, 38th at the end, said that it was a very fast and hard race. He missed the leading group out of T2 for a few seconds, tried his best to close the gap, but didn’t manage. The same thing was said by Salerno who, at the end finished 24th. He told us that it was a very fast swim, a difficult and technical bike because of the many turns and roundabouts. Together with them raced also Mozzachiodi finishing 25th, Carlotta Missaglia 27th, Crestani and Ragazzo 30th overall. It was the first time in which a race was held at the “Laghetto” of the Eur. The competition was won by two foreign athletes, already qualified for the summer games of Rio. Together with Faldum, the Austrian Lisa Perterer was the winner of the women’s race. The international Rome hopefully will organize the 2024 Olympics. Who knows…

 

Meanwhile at the sprint distance race of Oderzo (TV), the young Galeazzo keeps up the name of the Team, arriving in third place. He started in the first athletes’ wave and came out of the water 4th, managed to stay in the leading bike group after T1, and with a super transition exited T2 in 3rd position and, crossed the finish line claiming an important bronze. In his interview, after the race, he said that he enjoyed himself very much and was ready to go to a party together with Ragazzo who just came back from the Grand Prix race in Rome. When you say, blessed youth!
