The year of 2021 may have been one of the biggest of Sarah Gigante’s young cycling career, between an Olympic Games and signing with WorldTeam Movistar, but it has also been one where broken bones and recovery from myopericarditis means racing has been thin on the ground. As a result the 21-year-old has decided to ease back into competition on the familiar roads of Australia's National Road Series (NRS) before becoming immersed in the European peloton with her new team.

Gigante is planning to start racing again at the three-day Mitchelton Tour of Gippsland beginning on Sunday February 13, before taking on the 160km Lochard Energy Women’s Warrnambool Classic on Sunday February 20, the inaugural women’s specific event set to alongside the traditional Melbourne to Warrnambool.
