Last day of the Roubaix world championship: Elia for the big shot in elimination
From our correspondent Ciro Scognamiglio
– Roubaix (France)
Eight medals: 3 golds, 2 silvers, 3 bronzes. And it’s not over yet. The World Championships on track in Roubaix have reached the last day and Italy still has a heavy card to increase the tally of podiums, and that card is captain Elia Viviani.
On Saturday evening the 32-year-old from Verona has already reached the podium thanks to the bronze in the omnium, this afternoon at 4.39 pm he tries in the elimination to win that world championship jersey on the track that he still lacks despite 4 medals, the first 10 years ago. Usually this specialty smiles at Elia, but yesterday – in the third round of the omnium – he failed to go beyond the ninth place, so the prediction is really wide open.
The other blues in the race are Silvia Zanardi in the points race and the couple Simone Consonni-Michele Scartezzini in the American. With the last day of the World Championships on track, the 2021 season of great cycling will come to an end, which has brought several great satisfactions to Italian cycling.
