The Internazionali d'Italia Series of the Trinx Factory Team opens with two splendid performances by Giorgia Marchet and the junior Valentina Corvi, who raced Saturday at the 2nd Pineta Sperane Xco.

On the demanding ups and downs overlooking Lago di Garda, Giorgia Marchet showed off a growing shape, finishing third among the Elites behind the Italian champion Martina Berta and the Austrian Mona Mitterwallner and giving herself her first podium after the double top 5 in Verona and Albenga.

«At the debut I suffered a lot, a week ago in Liguria things had improved; today a further step forward has been done», explains with satisfaction the 24-year-old from Belluno (in Alessio Pederiva’s photo).«In addition to leg speed, the difference was made by my mind: despite suffering in the first laps, I didn’t’ give up and in the end I managed to find the right pace to earn the podium, moreover in front of the friends who came to support me».

First podium for Giorgia, second victory for Valentina Corvi, once again queen of the Junior Women's race.



«During the week I had excellent feelings, which I found again today in the race especially in the uphill sections», confirms Valentina Corvi (in Alessio Pederiva’s photo), able to accumulate such an advantage to manage a front wheel puncture in the final lap. «I thought it would take more time to reach a good shape after the cyclo-cross season, but things are going well. These two successes are the best encouragement in view of the debut with the national squad at the Junior Series event in Monte Tamaro next week».


In the women's race, eighth place for Eva Lechner (sixth among the Elites): Eva appeared much more at ease on the Veronese track than in Albenga a week ago. Fourteenth place (and seventh position among the Under 23s) for Lucia Bramati.

Focusing on to the Men's Open race, after the unlucky Ligurian test, Gioele Bertolini came back to the top 10, finishing tenth at Pineta Sperane Xco. Minimal objective achieved, even if the biker from Talamona is not satisfied and is already aiming for ambitious goals in the next competitions.

Interesting performance by Cristian Bernardi (in Alessio Pederiva’s photo), who crossed the finish line in 19th position, seventh among the Under 23s; especially comforting is the delay compared to the direct opponents who fought for the top 5, reduced to about twenty seconds.

Among the juniors, the growth of the boys directed by Luca Bramati continues. In San Zeno di Montagna, Daniele Corvi finished in 44th place, while Marco Guercilena was forced to retire due to a wheel problem when he was fighting for a position in the top 20.
