Edita Pucinskaite will make her racing debut this season at the GP Brissago, in Switzerland, on Sunday, March 12. "I still lack rhythm but that's normal," the Nobili Rubinetterie Menikini Cogeas rider said. "I've prepared for it in the best way, certainly in the cold but it's clear that I need to race to get better."
In 2006, the Lithuanian is looking forward to race the Women's Giro d'Italia, scheduled for June 30-July 9. "It's a race that has fascinated me since I was a kid, for its importance and history," she continued. "I would like to race it as a contender for victory but much will depend on the parcours, which I hope will be hard." After the GP Brissago, Pucinskaite will participate in the Giro di Campania from March 17-19. The Primavera Rosa, the women's Milano-San Remo, has meanwhile been cancelled.
