Filippo Ganna and the quartet for gold. Viviani and medal Paternoster – OA Sport

After the spectacular gold medal grabbed yesterday by Martina Fidanza in scratch, we are back in Roubaix Velodrome for the second day of the Track Cycling World Championships, with Italy still wanting to dream on French soil.

Very high possibilities to play the Mameli Hymn in the most awaited race: in fact the final of the team chase with the Azzurri, reigning Olympic champions, on the hunt for another triumph. The quartet led by Filippo Ganna with Jonathan Milan, Simone Consonni and the doubt between Francesco Lamon and Liam Bertazzo challenge the host France, but obviously starting with the underdogs.

Team pursuit also for women with women who have yet to play the first round (basically the semifinal, with Great Britain). Blue with Letizia Paternoster, Martina Fidanza, Elisa Balsamo and Rachele Barbieri who challenge Great Britain with the dream of grabbing the grand final and groped all out with Germany.

Male scratch is also scheduled, with the world championship debut of Elia Viviani: the tricolor phenomenon wants to break the ice immediately with a great test before launching towards the omnium. In closing the elimination to women with Italy that deploys Letizia Paternoster, European silver in office.

In speed there is the male keirin, with the Bel Paese absent, while Miriam Vece will try to do the maximum in the female sprint.
