Minsk Cycling Club Continental Team to open season in Italy
The riders of the Minsk Cycling Club Road Continental Team are going to start their 2016 race program early February joining an international race in Italy.
The team successfully finished its training camp in Minsk at the Minsk Arena velodrome and went to Italy to continue the preparation. All nine riders (Aleh Ahyievich, Stanislau Bazhkou, Anton Ivashkin, Kanstantsin Klimiankou, Anton Muzychkin, Aliaksei Piashkun, Andrei Piashkun, Siarhei Papok, Raman Ramanau) and the team manager Ruslan Pidgornyy are located in Riotorto, Toscana region. In this part of Italy the weather and roads are optimal for winter training camps.
Furthermore, the Belarussian team has been invited to the GP Costa degli Etruschi 1.1 international race. This year the event is going to gather a very strong list of participants. 20 teams have already confirmed their participation: World Tour Lampre-Merida, five Procontinental teams, 13 Continental teams as well as Italy and Nigeria National teams. So the Minsk riders will have a good opportunity to gain experience and show themselves among elite teams.
