Battistella takes intention at Ardennes after ending marketing campaign with Veneto Traditional victory

“I’m from Rossano Veneto, not even 10 kilometres from here. These are my home roads, my training roads,” Samuele Battistella (Astana-Premier Tech) smiled in the press room following the inaugural edition of the Veneto Classic, but local knowledge was only part of the story of his dramatic victory.

When Battistella escaped in the company of Matteo Trentin (UAE Team Emirates) with a shade under 40km to go, it already looked like the winning break, given that the race’s two strongest teams were now united in ensuring its success.
