Another player who completed the composition of the CCC Polsat Polkowice in the cycling season 2013, become an experienced Italian cyclist Davide Rebellin.
The Management Board of MKS Polkowice reports that in the last days of October, current year, after the long discussions, have been attained details of the contract with the Italian rider, Davide Rebellin.
By mutual agreement, we signed a one-year contract with David, which will be valid from 01.01.2013 to 31.12.2013 – Director coordinator, Robert Krajewski informed. Davide Rebellin is a player who despite his 41 years is still a high-class rider and still he is in very good disposal. He proved it this year, that he can afford to continue the fight with the best world leaders. He raced Giro di Padania race, where in the most severe stages he conducted the balanced fight with Nibalim Vicenzo. We know that Davide will be very strong reinforcement for our team, and his knowledge, cycling experience and commitment during trainings will be invaluable. Davide is a very modest player and he hasn’t talked about his past, only about what he wants to do more in cycling. I hope that our mutual cooperation would bring him and the group CCC Polsat Polkowice a lot of benefits.
Recall that recently Davide Rebbelin raced in the continental teams: Miche Guerciotti and then in Croatian Meridiana-Kamen and it was good sports period for him. He won a stage and the general classification of a difficult, French race, Tour du Gevaudan, stage of the race Around Slovakia and in Giro di Padania race he finished twice in second place. Last season he won the tough mountain Tre Valli Varesina.
However, the greatest successes he got in 2004, when as a cyclist Gerolsteiner reached his greatest sporting success, winning in sequence the three Ardennes Classics: Amstel Gold Race, Fleche and Liege Walonne-Bastogne-Liege.
He has also victories in many significant races such as: Classica San Sebastian (1997), Zurich Championship (1997), Tirreno – Adriatico (2001), Frankfurt Grand Prix (2003), Giro dell’Emilia (2006), Fleche Walonne (2007, 2009), Paris – Nice (2008).
At the moment, we do not even talk with the Team Sports Director – Piotr Wadecki about plans for next season and what races will we start. There will be time, but as we have already pre-established, the target event that CCC Polsat Polkowice will take place, will be the Tour de Pologne, which as we know in 2013 will start in Italy – Robert Krajewski added. Now we are waiting for confirmation from the UCI that the team has met all the requirements for registration in the group of professional teams and only then we will prepare the entire cycle of preparation for the 2013 cycling season.
