Fabrizio Von Nacher reports on his recent racing and big win in Mexico:
Being back in Mexico have been great, I am happy to see my family and my friends. I had the chance to race with my old friends and teammates as a guest rider at the Vuelta a Saltillo. This was a great race for me and the team, we raced for three days. It was an omnium race which means placings were by points, not by time.
The first day it was a circuit race, I got in a break with one of my teammates and another strong rider and at the end we managed to go 1 and 3 with me winning, and another teammate won the field sprint for 4th.
The second day was a hard road race. The first half was all downhill but the second part of the race was uphill. So we controlled all the first half and avoided breaks. When we went to the uphill section, the attacks started and of course it was my job to be in the move. By the end most of my teammates were in the front group and we stared attacking and finally one of us went solo and got the stage win and me and another teammate went 2 and 3 in the sprint. This was a perfect situation. We just needed to get some points the last day and we would secure the overall lead.
The last day the team controlled the race riding tempo at the front and by the end we did a lead out and managed to place my teammate 1st and 2nd myself and secure the overall victory. It was a great race! I miss racing in Mexico and it always good to be back and win!
