TTT: Team Time Trial.
Yesterday me Marta Cavalli, Maria Giulia Confalonieri, Chiara Consonni, Silvia Persico and Ilaria Sanguineti participated at our first Team Time Trial of the World Tour calender in Sweden (Vårgårda), 42km under the rain.
We knew it was hard, because we’ve never train this speciality and each of us came here with a different physical condition. Also the weather didn’t help us: a lot of rain and low temperatures.
Despite everything we managed to stay together. In the end we crossed the line in 5 (because of the technical part of the circuit). We also did some technical mistakes and, scarred not to keep a high speed during the 42km, we started to slow.
We ended in 14th position, but we know there’s a lot of work to do and that we can only do it better!
