The first stage of the World Cup in Minsk ended with a very good result in the team pursuit!

After a good 4:17.474 in the qualifications we were the second team behind the USA, in the semifinals just like a week ago at the European Championships, we raced against the strong Germans.

With these European championships, the track season has started again!

Unfortunately my approach to this competition was not ideal because I got sick and just the week before the start of the races I had to stay still for a few days.

Podium with view!

It has been successful here in London! Me, Simona Frapporti, Vittoria Guazzini and Silvia Valsecchi have reached a very “heavy” third place in the team pursuit. Of course the time, 4’23”1, wasn’t one of our best, but I’m really satisfied because of three reasons: - We girls have never raced together because we have been [...]
