In the opening day in Berlin, Northwave’s athletes finished second in the Team Pursuit behind France
First medals for Northwave in the opening day of Track European Championships in Berlin (Germany): on Thursday October 19th, Italy’s Filippo Ganna, Simone Consonni and Francesco Lamon, equipped with Extreme RR shoes, claimed a superb silver medal in the Team Pursuit, with Liam Bertazzo rounding out the Italian team.
After a brilliant qualification round, the Italian quartet eliminated Russia in the semifinals, gaining the opportunity to contest for the title against France. As usually, the Italian team started slowly but performed a remarkable progression up to 3:55.986 overall timing, 2 tenths of seconds behind the France team. Russia got the bronze medal ahead of Germany.
After the World bronze conquered in Honk Kong last April, the Italian quartet consolidated its reputation in Berlin, always with the Northwave “green line” - Ganna, Consonni, Lamon – in the spotlights.
