JUAN PABLO DOTTI, winner of the Vuelta a la Pampa (Argentina)
THE BEST TRIBUTE TO CHUKY
The Public Employees Union successfully completed its participation in the Vuelta a La Pampa, which returned to the national cycling calendar after a 22-year absence. And it was Juan Pablo Dotti,
one of the reinforcers for this season, who achieved the first big win of the season for the Green Bugs. The native of Bolivar finished third in the stage of this Sunday behind Laureano Rosas and
Maximiliano Navarrete, both of the Argentina Selection and thus, Dotti managed to maintain its leadership and took over the important pampeana competition that was run in tribute to the missing Elí
as " Chuky "Pereyra who was an emblem of the SEP.
The fifth and final stage was the longest of the race: it was 180 kilometers that joined Ruta de la Cría, with Paraje El Durazno to finish in Santa Rosa. Throughout the morning there were a series
of attacks that did not cause concern in the continental San Juan team. An escape of a dozen men - all away in the General Classification - kept watch to the SEP that maintained the pace of the
peloton and waited the right moment to attack.
Dotti did it in the last 40 kilometers. In that court Ariel Sívori of Los Matanceros was also arrested, along with Laureano Rosas and Maximiliano Navarrete, both of the Argentina National Team,
Rosas to 14 minutes in the General but Navarrete to only 5 seconds of the Bolivarian. Unfortunately Dotti was left alone and had to do all the solo wear. With a lot of wind, heat and knowing that
three other cyclists were chasing after just a few seconds, Dotti's strategy was to keep legs to the end without risking too much. Sívori remained and between Dotti, Navarrete and Rosas they faced
the final stretch.
Roses attacked and took off. The cut of the former Bicho Verde favored Dotti who knew that in the end if Navarrete got him 20 meters he would remove the General, so he stayed there and the plans
went perfectly. Rosas won the stage, and a few meters back Navarrete and Dotti arrived, with that bonus Bolivar was enshrined in the Vuelta that was no more than a great and emotional tribute to
the beloved "Chuky". Because in addition, the Prize to the best pampeano cyclist that took the name of Chuky, had to Mauricio Muller, objective that was to look for.
But not only that, it put in total three positions in the top ten of the General, since Gastón Javier finished fifth and Emiliano Ibarra did it ninth.
"Very happy to win this Tour more than anything for what it means to pay homage to Chuky. The guys did a great job. The legs responded very well, in moments like this where you only have to run
with a very cold mind and try not to make any mistakes. I am very happy to achieve my second Vuelta with this shirt, grateful to SEP for making me part of this winning team. I am happy, eternally
grateful, this just begins and now we have to think about what is coming ", said the Bolivar who came as a serious candidate and with his achievements is demonstrating.
