“Having decided only at the last to participate, for the first time in my life I left without even having
tried the track », confesses Silvia Persico. «For this reason I was very cautious in the first lap, being
a wheel by Alessia Bulleri and Chiara Teocchi; then in the second part of the race I took the lead and,
without risking anything, I reached the finish line ».

of the team were to take part in the Netherlands in the Hulst World Cup event. A trip

observed a rest shift; I, who had already rested in Zolder, instead preferred to compete to try the
leg in view of the tricolor test on January 9th ».
