There was a lot of curiosity to understand what the condition of the Valcar – Travel & Service athletes was in this very special season, where many girls have been in retreat with the national team to better prepare for the eventual Olympic event.
Despite the fatigue accumulated by the workloads, the athletes in fuchsia jersey gave their best, finishing in the top ten positions in three out of four races. A good booty given the high level of the participants of these competitions.

At the Tour de Suisse there was a general growth of young women: Eleonora Gasparrini won a double thirteenth place in both stages on a track not really suited to her characteristics, while the expert Alice Maria Arzuffi achieved a good 9th place in the second stage.

The greatest satisfactions came from Belgium. At Dwars door de Westhoek Elisa Balsamo finished in 7th place, while Chiara Consonni won the Lotto Cup leader’s jersey by virtue of her previous victory at the Ronde de Mouscron.

Also in Belgium, the girls directed by Davide Arzeni obtained another important placement with Ilaria Sanguineti who placed eighth at the Dwars door Het Hageland on Saturday. Finally, the placements Silvia Persico conquers a 12th place at Dwars door Het Hageland and Martina Alzini finished 12th place in the second stage of the Tour de Suisse.
