Trek-Segafredo's Elisa Longo Borghini says that she's excited to finally be able to begin her 2020 season at three races in the Basque Country this week, starting with the Emakumeen Nafarroako Klasikoa on Thursday.

Two weeks ago, Longo Borghini joined teammates Audrey Cordon-Ragot and Anna Plichta, along with members of the men's Trek-Segafredo squad, for an altitude training camp in San Pellegrino in the Italian Dolomites. The members of the women's squad have now rejoined their teammates in Spain in readiness for the three upcoming Basque races, with the Emakumeen Nafarroako Klasikoa on Thursday, the Clasica Femenina Navarra on Friday and the Durango-Durango Emakumeen Saria on Sunday.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
