One of the surprises of this season was given to us by the Brazilian Avancini when he announced that he was leaving Cannondale, the brand where he has developed his entire career so far, to create and lead his own team: the Caloi Henrique Avancini Racing. Now, in Banyoles, we have been able to see up close the Caloi ELITE CARBON FS with which Avancini will race in 2023.
