Objective achieved for Silvia Persico who, after the good time triallist closed in third place, comes second in the first stage of the Ceratizit Festival Elsy Jacobs, winning the leader’s jersey of the short Luxembourg stage race.

Race decided in a three-way sprint, with the 24-year-old from Bergamo preceded by Marta Bastianelli but able to precede one of the favourites for the final success: Demi Vollering.

And it will be the Dutchman who will be the most popular opponent to contend for the final success against Silvia, who on her side will have a team that ran as a protagonist even today. Eleonora Gasparrini, in fact, crossed the finish line in sixth position, 11 “behind her partner. The Canadian Olivia Baril also did well, eleventh at the finish.

The last fraction of Garnich will be decisive, as expected, in which already in 2021 Silvia Persico took a good 4th place.
