Edita Pucinskaite wrapped up her first training camp with her new team Dila - Kuota in Sormano, Italy. There she received her new Kuota bike and started laying the foundations for next season with her new teammates.
"All the young girls were full of enthusiasm. Unfortunately, three of the girls were missing, but I'm sure that we'll all soon bond as a group," said Pucinskaite, who will serve as leader of the team along with Marta Viljaosana.
"I will be the leader with the most responsibility and will also work with our young riders to help them grow. Some of them have already been riding for their national teams, but most have not had a lot of pressure."
At the meeting, Pucinskaite and her teammates visited Sormano and took a hike in some freshly fallen snow. Following the meeting, she will continue to work in the gym and start riding more from January onward. "Cycling is ruthless. If you want to stay on top, you have to commit 100%," she said.
