addtime:2023-01-12 click: 80

Lots of good news for the Trinx Factory Team in the last weekend before the Italian Championship in Ostia Antica.

In the World Cup round in Zonhoven, the junior Valentina Corvi finished in fifth place, taking her best result of the season in the most important UCI circuit; in Italy, moreover, Lucia Bramati returned to racing after the stop to solve respiratory problems and, after the third places in Scorzè and Seregno, she achieved success in Flero, in the province of Brescia.


Starting from the World Cup round in Belgium, Valentina Corvi (in the archive photo) shined, despite a new track for her, characterized by numerous and long stretches of sand.


«A very tough race, with the sand that allowed no errors», confirms Valentina Corvi. «I started very fast, but then I had to slow down my pace to safe some energy for the last laps. At the end I was able to secure the fifth position and get close to the fourth classified. In any case, I consider it a good test, especially in view of Italian Championship, scheduled in Rome the next Sunday».



The other good news is the return first to the competitions and today to the victory of Lucia Bramati who, under a torrential rain, won the 4th Trofeo Città di Flero (in Valentina Barzi’s picture).


«But what matters most are the feelings on the bike», says Lucia Bramati with relief, who seems to have solved the respiratory problems that had stopped her after Vermiglio. « Fortunately, after an initial 'pessimistic' consultation, the tests revealed that it was a diaphragm problem».

Problem that has been solved, allowing the 19-year-old to compete again on 5 January in Scorzè.

«I ended third but with unsatisfactory sensations; the next day in Seregno I closed again in third place, but things went definitely better; finally today I stormed to victory in Flero.


A small workload in view of next week's Italian Championship: it certainly wasn't the run-in I was hoping for, but the way things had turned out two weeks ago I can be more light-hearted».
