The girls of Valcar Cylance celebrate a great Tour of Flanders. A special group that gave great satisfaction racing on the walls and the cobblestones. Eleventh at the finish line, Marta Cavalli was the best rider, Ilaria Sanguineti pushed hard for the entire race with 120 kilometers of breakaway drawing curves and climbing Cotes, generous and combative Maria Giulia Confalonieri, tenacious and resistant Silvia Persico, lively Vittoria Guazzini at her first Tour, the unlucky Elisa Balsamo felt down during training the day before the race and forced to retire: they gave their soul. The Tour of Flanders of Valcar Cylance is summed up in a high-level collective performance.
That result of Marta Cavalli is the continuation of a growth that began last year with the tri-color triumph. Strong, untiring and determined, the Italian champion in Belgium must achieve great results in the World Tour races: thirteenth in the Driedaagse Brugge-De Panne, tenth in the Ghent-Wevelgem, eleventh in the Tour of Flanders. And also in Italy the thirteenth after Trofeo Binda in Cittiglio. For a girl of only 21 years doing so well in these races is not a small thing. From these numbers there can only be only space for improvement.
