For the Italian for the road cyclist Filippo Gannalle the season ended was very successful. The big driver of the British team Ineos Grenadiers won, among other things, the world time trial championship as well as four stages in the Italian lap race. Three of them were time trials.

“I had a 39 degree fever for three days and it didn’t stop even though I took paracetamol three times a day. My bones ached, and had all the classic flu symptoms. For a week, the sense of taste and smell was gone, ”Ganna told the Italian cycling magazine Tuttobic, which is referenced by Cycling News.
