Tomorrow will take place the individual time trial and for the first time of my life I will partecipate in this kind of race with the Italian jersey. This competition will be in Brno (Czech Republic) and provides a circuit with a climb to do twice (24 km total). It could be a different kind of time trial, because of the climb. I’m not a cronowoman, but I’ll try to do my best to honor this opportunity the national team gave me. I’ll try to concentrate without searching my opponent’s “elbow” (as I always do) and to improve my skills in this speciality. It’ll help me either for the team time trials, than for the time trials in the stage races.
Saturday the 14th will take place the road race, in Zlin (Czech Republic). The circuit is really hard and selective, the total distance will be of 108 km. The Italian national team is composed of five athletes and with the help of our technical commissary we will try to do our best and to bring home the best result.
Dressing the national jersey is always an emotion, honor it is a “must” and winning with it is a dream.
