- I am very happy with such a success of the team! ITT was very difficult today, especially on its second part with a long climb and strong front wind. I think, that the race was decided on this second part of distance. Anton Vorobyev, who was recovering for a long time after his crash in the beginning of spring, showed some good performances during Giro Ciclistico d’Italia, where he worked a lot for the team and Ilnur Zakarin. So, today’s result – its just a right developing of his shape. Sergei Chernetckii, the same, was very good in Italy and could save his shape till Russian Championships. I hope, this Saturday we will show some good results in Under 23 road race too, - said Alexei SHCHEBELIN, sports director of Itera-Katusha.
For Anton Vorobyev today’s gold medal is second victory in Russian Road Championships in a row. In 2011 Vorobyev, the same, won Under 23 ITT.
