In the aftermath of the hard stage of the zoncolan mountain, jacomo nizzolo decided to retire from the race in pink. A choice that of the class 1989 taken by common accord with his team qhubeka assos. Nizzolo has however removed the satisfaction of winning his first stage to the round, breaking a real curse and 16 podiums collected in career.
On the day of the 15th stage, after the zoncolan fatigues, arrived the officiality of the withdrawal of jacomo nizzolo, through a communiqué of the team qhubeka assos. Finally winning a stop here was a dream that came true, and the raw emotion at the finish of verona proved it. I entered the race in good condition, with fast legs and concentrated on the sprints dishes, but I struggled on the climbs that really had their toll.
So we decided that it would be better for me to stop and recover to look to the future.
