Australia’s Sarah Gigante (TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank) has already made a mark in the debut race of her first solid international season, stepping into the blue jersey of the leader of the youth classification in the Women’s WorldTour at Trofeo Alfredo Binda.

The 20-year old rider, who already has a list of Australian titles to her name, came across the line in 23rd at the first European Women’s WorldTour race of her career, looking far more at home than in her previous short international forays and as if she’s carrying some of the formidable form from her Australian season.
