Anton Cooper on the podium at his first international race of the season

Posted by Caleb Smith on Monday March 4 2013

Anton and his Cannondale teammates had only just left their Cannondale Team Camp (with Mark Weir, Jerome Clementz and Ben Cruz) days before, and yet they’ve already racked up a solid podium finish in Italy at Tregnago with Manuel Fumic in 1st, Anton in 2nd and the third Cannondale rider on the podium Marco Fontana in 5th after a flat! (Notice the Cannondale riders cover up their Lycra with baggies for the podium!)

Not a bad start to the season really, and obviously he took the under 23 category! Although it seems Jerome Clementz is taking some of the credit for the win, Tweeting “@antonmtb @ManuelFumic @fontanaprorider congrats. I believe that some training with the OverMountain team and cocktail contest paid today”
