Daniele Colli finished on the podium in the fourth stage of the Presidential Tour of Turkey by taking second in the sprint behind Greipel. It is the second podium of the season for the Nippo-Vini Fantini whose teammate Mattia Pozzo was on the attack until only 15km remained.

 

It was another great sprint after he fifth place behind Cavendish two days ago. Today the only one who was faster, was Greipel, another great champion.

 

“We did a great race. First Yamamoto went in the first escape of the day. Then Mattia Pozzo was in the second long escape of the day and finally Daniele Colli was good to be among the 30 best riders in the final km and with the support of De Negri he took a great podium," sports director Mario Manzoni said.

 

”I’m really satisfied, we were always in the race and the only one better than me was Greipel and it was really important to be there also after the climb," Colli said. "It was a good job by Genki Yamamoto and Mattia Pozzo to be in the escapes and then I want to thank De Negri for the help he gave me. We are a Professional team but in the last two weeks we have been riding against lots of champions and top teams and have been able to achieve great results.

 

"Winning is something else but I'm happy because I'm fine although I always find one who is better than me. In the sprint I was forced to start from the back, there were riders who had no legs but they wanted to do the sprint. However, thanks to De Negri I managed to take second place. we have shown that we are not afraid of the big despite being a small team. Greipel? He deserved the win but we will try to take revenge in the coming days.

 

"Everyone wanted to be on André Greipel’s wheel, but he went early. When I started my sprint, I was already several lengths behind. He was impossible to beat. I knew the stage finish at Marmaris because I finished third here three years ago. I’m happy. We are a small team, and are taking on some big names here. After this race, I’ll go to the the Giro d’Italia to help Cunego.
