Very good Martina! Fidanza first gold for Italy at the Track Cycling World Championships

Italy won the gold medal in women’s scratch with Martina Fidanza. It is the Azzurri’s first title at the cycling world championships held in Roubaix (France). Second place and silver to Dutch Maike Van Der Duin while American Jennifer Valente finished with bronze at the foot of the podium.

L’Italy has conquered the gold medal in women’s scratch with Martina Fidanza to the cycling world championships which are held in Roubaix (in France). With seven laps to go, the Azzurra picked up the pace, engaged high gears and milled the games on the pedals. There was no effort that could stop her, nor an opponent who could hold her own: adrenaline, technique, determination pushed her to success by detachment, almost doubling the other competitors. The cry of joy is the last snapshot that comes from the track: raised fist, smile, and a few tears that moisten the eyes.

Fidanza (21 years old) did it, she was very good calibrating her energies to perfection in the 10-kilometer race and choosing the best moment for the assault on the title. There were ten laps to go when the Bergamo champion realized that the time had come to launch the long sprint to the sprint for the most precious metal. It was there that the race took another turn despite the Hungarian Borissza’s attempt to reach. The cyclist from Ponte San Pietro began her breakaway, accumulating meters and an advantage. Second place and silver to Dutch Maike Van Der Duin while American Jennifer Valente finished with bronze at the foot of the podium.

Fidanza has never let go. Not even in the final lap, when he had the victory in hand, and he continued to push on the pedals until he rejoiced for the first elite world title. The last lap, that of triumph and embrace. An extraordinary, well-deserved success that follows on from the one won among the Juniors in 2017 at the 2020 European Championship. A force of nature in the Scratch discipline: at 21 (she will be 22 in two weeks) she is already queen of the track and happens to another Azzurra. In the specialty the last title won by an Italian was the prerogative of Rachele Barbieri (2017).
