«I’m going to do my best because I want to give to this young national team a medal», said Giorgia Marchet, who has ambitions especially for the relay team. «Because it is a team test in which the goodness of the group makes the difference; considering the good atmosphere in the national team, I would like to get on that podium with the other bikers».

After the first experience in Serbia in 2021 among the juniors, it is time to breathe again the atmosphere of the European Championships also for Noemi
Plankensteiner, at her second continental kermesse and already on track on Thursday for the short track.

For now, I am satisfied with my performances, even in the World Cup, but we don't want to stop now».

My goal? Make experience; and if a good result came it would be wonderful».

Fabio Bassignana is going to race in Team Relay and Xco«I admit, I am a little nervous. This is my first European Championship and my shape is pretty good. That’s why I have high expectations.
