October 14, 2021:  Matteo Trentin edged closer to victory at the Giro del Veneto, coming away with a second place behind Xandro Meurisse (Alpecin-Fenix) in a well-timed late escape at the end of the 168km from Cittadella to Padova.

Trentin along with Meurisse and Jhonathan Restrepo (Androni) moved off the front with -6km to go and build a narrow lead on the chasing bunch of 25 riders behind, with the remaining members of the Emirati team working together to disrupt the chase.

 

Missing from the chase was Marc Hirschi, who was involved in a crash while on the attack with Alexey Lutsenko (Astana). The Swiss rider slid out while cornering on a descent but would remount and finish the race without any serious injury.

 

Trentin's second place was backed up by Alessandro Covi who was close behind in 5th spot.

 

Trentin:”I think as a team we executed the tactics almost perfectly, just a pity Marc crashed in the downhill. After that myself, Ulissi, Covi and Formolo took it in turns to go on the attack and I managed to get up the road and finished second, again. It's frustrating as it's second time this week, but we'll give it another go on Sunday.”

 

On Sunday the team will tackle the final race of their 2021 calendar at the Veneto Classic.
