Good debut for Valcar – Travel & Service which conquers the podium of the Vuelta CV Feminas thanks to the second place of Ilaria Sanguineti. The race was won in the sprint by the Italian Marta Bastianelli; in the end there was also a fall without serious consequences for Chiara Consonni.
Few actions to report in the match report. Only in the last 20 km there have been shots with Eleonora Gasparrini very active on the head of the group. Unfortunately, however, 5 km from the finish, Eleonora was involved in a fall that prevented her from taking part in the sprint train.
Despite the absence of Gasparrini, the girls from Valcar – Travel & Service moved well. Ilaria Sanguineti follows Marta Bastianelli’s shot and throws the sprint to Chiara Consonni. But when Chiara starts with her sprint, the sprinter from Bergamo comes into contact with Barbara Guarischi (downgraded) and ends up on the ground. Despite this drawback, Ilaria Sanguineti is very good at finishing in second position. The performances of the French Margaux Vigié, the Polish Karolina Kumiega and the Canadian Olivia Baril were also positive.
“I finished second, but we are not satisfied – says an embittered Ilaria Sanguineti – if I placed second by pulling the sprint, maybe without the crash we could have fought for the victory. I am happy for my personal feelings, but it was not the beginning we wanted. We will certainly have many other opportunities, this is not what demoralizes us. Now the important thing is that Chiara and Eleonora are well “.
