Vittoria Guazzini: “I’m very happy, winning at home is special. I didn’t feel the fatigue. The European U23 Time Trial was an important goal of the season and I’m happy to have hit it. In recent days I was very cautious: I am a superstitious girl and then there were many strong contenders, it was important not to underestimate anyone. I’m very proud: I handled myself well and I’m particularly happy with how I interpreted the race. The course was suitable for me, for specialists: I pushed from the beginning to the end and it went well“.
