Guardini signs with Bardiani-CSF - News shorts

Italian sprinter Andrea Guardini has signed a two-year contract with the Pro Continental team Bardiani-CSF, the squad announced today. The 28-year-old moves across after one year with UAE Team Emirates during which he struggled to crack the top 10 in a WorldTour race. Guardini has a history of success as a pure sprinter in his prior seasons with Astana and Farnese Vini, racking up a total of 40 victories, including 22 stages of the Tour de Langkawi and a stage win at the 2012 Giro d`Italia over Mark Cavendish. Guardini was under contract with UAE Team Emirates for another year, but he and the team mutually agreed to part ways. The arrival of Alexander Kristoff made for even more limited opportunities for sprinters.ADVERTISEMENT `During past weeks I thought a lot about my career so far. I thought about my future prospectives and ambitions,` Guardini said in a Bardiani press release. `I couldn`t hide that in last seasons, including 2017, I didn`t get what I wanted. I`m pretty sure I can deserve a place in a WorldTour team, but the most important thing for me is the role I can have. In Bardiani-CSF I know I can be leader in many races.` `Coming back in a [Pro Continental] team is not a failure for me, but a conscious choice. I know I`ll be in a solid and well-equipped team, in a young and motivated environment. Another remarkable aspect is the calendar. Bardiani-CSF has always raced important events, so I can alternate good level races suited for my characteristics and top events.` Managers Bruno and Roberto Reverberi were pleased to bring in an experienced sprinter to the team.
