A quick preview look at Trofeo Oro in Euro 2024

The Trofeo Oro in Euro is a long-running race on the coast of the Ligurian Sea in the Med. Results go back to at least 2008 but it’s only in recent years that it’s been bumped up to UCI level. 2022 was the first one at the highest level and since then it has been won by Sofia Bertizzolo and Gaia Realini. Both are home winners and give the race a great dose of credibility. Bertizzolo had won already in 2016, and other winners include Marta Bastianelli, Rachele Barbieri, Arianna Fidanza and Elisa Longo Borghini.

The race pans out as 5 relatively calm flat laps before taking a turn. From there the race sees 2 ascents of the Fortezza climb which should shake up the race. It certainly did last year with Gaia Realini going clear with teammate Amanda Spratt. Spratt gifted the win to Realini as they crossed the line with arms in the air holding hands. It was a payback from the team for Realini having to give up the UAE Tour Women win a few weeks beforehand.

There’s enough there for a hilly type of sprinter to get over the Fortezza or maybe catch back up after the climb to contest the win as well. Or simply go on the first climb like they did successfully last season.
