CCC Team Set for Back to Back Spanish Races

Sports Director Gabriele Missaglia said CCC Team is looking to continue its early-season success at the back to back Spanish races.

“CCC Team will be well-represented at both races this weekend. For all of the riders, with the exception of Jakub Mareczko, this will be the first time they race this year and for that reason, we won’t have a clear team leader for Vuelta Ciclista a la Región de Murcia. Instead, we will take each day as it comes and use the race as an important test to see where the riders’ form is ahead of Clásica de Almería, which we will go to with Mareczko as our leader for the likely bunch sprint. However, I am confident in the ability of the riders we have racing in Murcia and I think we can look to make the most out of any opportunities that come our way. Then, with the team working for Mareczko, we will have a really good chance to make a nice result in Almería”

Jakub Mareczko is looking forward to making his European debut for CCC Team after starting his season in Australia.

“I’m feeling in good shape after the Australian season and I was happy to pick up a third place at my first UCI WorldTour race of the year. Clásica de Almería is another opportunity for me to go for the sprint. It’s still early in the season so there is more work to do in order to be where I want to be but I think my form is good. I am really happy that the team is giving me the opportunity to have a go here and I will definitely give 100% to try and make a good result,” Mareczko said.
