Today the AIS Mapei Aqua Australian team was in Asti for the Coppa Citta di Asti, run in pouring rain over 6 laps of a hilly circuit. The 200 rider field was split down to around 50 for the final run over wet cobbles to the finish. Aaron showed power and speed to win by 2 lengths from Daniele Colli making him the first foreigner to win the 70 year-old World Cup event.
