Trofeo "Guareschi" Prodotti Ittici, Sala Baganza, Italy, April 24, 2005
The last couple of weeks I have missed some races to prepare for today's race. I had the support of my entire team, which was a great feeling but a little scary. The team raced 100 percent for me today chasing down every move to ensure a sprint finish. With one lap to go I had no choice but to win, I could not let the team down after all their hard work.
I took the wheel of Giorgia Bronzini with 200m to go but soon after followed a move from Annalisa Cucinotta (Scratch Race Junior World Champion) who finished 2nd today. It was a fast uphill sprint and I made my move with 100m to go to take the win.
Tomorrow we will race Liberazione - another flat race! Looking forward to it!
