Arianna Fidanza is looking forward to Giro Rosa

Arianna, who is from Bergamo, already participated four times in the Giro. She conquered a top ten place on a stage two times. In 2016 she claimed the sixth place on stage four and last year she finished tenth on the final stage.

Arianna Fidanza: “I’m happy about the preparation I had towards this Giro. In July I had a three-week training camp in Livigno. Then I restarted the season in Strade Bianche. After a training camp in Belgium with my teammates, to do recons of the Classics, I participated in GP de Plouay and La Course. I knew before Plouay that my shape was good. I had a crash in Plouay and fell on my knee, but despite that I finished 6th! This result made me very happy.”

“My shape is good and I’ll do my very best for the team! They always offer us a hard course at the Giro, with almost no chances for a sprint this year. I do see several opportunities to join a breakaway. But first there’s the team time trial. We did a recon of the course on Wednesday and Thursday. We don’t often ride team time trials, but I have some experience from previous editions of the Giro for example. And I actually like the discipline. I’m looking forward to kicking off the race with my teammates. I really can’t wait to start this Giro!”

Line-up Lotto Soudal Ladies: Teuntje Beekhuis, Arianna Fidanza, Lotte Kopecky, Lone Meertens, Abby Mae Parkinson and Julie Van De Velde.
