First success in the Valcar – Travel & Service jersey for Silvia Magri who triumphs in Offida by winning the last stage of the Giro delle Marche. A remarkable victory for an athlete who has never failed to provide his contribution to the team and who today got a great satisfaction. Huge satisfaction also for Lizzie Stannard’s seasonal debut. Hired a few weeks ago and not yet perfectly trained, the Australian made a name for herself by taking a auspicious second place in Saturday’s stage and a fourth place in the elite order of arrival of today’s stage. The Frenchman Margaux Vigié, on the other hand, won the flying finish line jersey.
Excellent indications have also arrived from the youth sector. First of all, the junior Francesca Pellegrini made her debut with the blue jersey at the European Championships in Trento, giving her precious contribution to the placements of her companions, while countless satisfactions came from the youngest rookies in a very prestigious race such as the Evening Cup.
In fact, the first year Italian champion Maria Acuti was able to win by gap and arrive alone with her arms raised at the finish line in Borgo Valsugana (TN), while her teammate Sofia Pezzotta was good at finishing in fourth place. In the race reserved for rookies in the 2nd year, Giulia Zambelli got on the podium, taking an important third place; teammate Misia Belotti also did very well, able to finish in seventh position.
Finally, in the Coppa Rosa reserved for students, Marta Pavesi confirmed herself at high levels, who concluded her test by finding a very good fifth place, while Beatrice Bertolini finished in ninth position.
