It’s all very well to have made a big splash in a relatively small pond (Czech, Slovak and Lithuanian Open), it’s a different kettle of fish to jump into the ocean and do the same – and we were as keen to see how it went as most of you out there!
As it turned out, Michele impressed us all last week at the World Cup in Andradas/Brazil, flying with a lot of confidence from the word “go”, and actually lying 2. or 3. up until the last task or so, where he “dropped” all the way down to 5th 😉 In fact Michele crossed the goal line first on the first day, but in the end was missing a few leadout points to take the day. All in all, and before having spoken with Michele himself about it, it’s probably OK to say that Michele and the Gambit were a very fortunate combination in this event.
We think this is looking rather promising, to say the least, and we’re keen to see what happens next. As soon as we can we’ll also be chatting to Michele about his Brazilian experience – he’s bound to have something interesting to say. Watch this space for updates, and a big congrats to Michele from the whole team here in Ajdovscina!
