Valcar – Travel & Service, Silvia Persico is the new leader at the Ceratizit Festival Elsy Jacobs.


Mission accomplished for Silvia Persico who, after the good prologue finished in third place, takes the second place in the first stage of the Ceratizit Festival Elsy Jacobs. A good result that let her to wear the leader’s jersey of the Luxembourg stage race.

The race was decided in a sprint between three athletes, with the 24-year-old from Bergamo preceded by Marta Bastianelli but able to precede one of the favorites for the final success: Demi Vollering.

The dutchman will be the most dangerous rival for the final success; but Silvia Persico will have on her side a team that today has showed its strenght. Eleonora Gasparrini, in fact, crossed the finish line in sixth position, 11″ behind her captain. The Canadian Olivia Baril also did a good performance, ending in eleventh place.

As expected, the last stage in Garnich will be pivotal. Last year Silvia Persico took a good 4th place on the same path.
