EUROPEAN ROAD CHAMPIONSHIPS 2021
Thousands of cycling fans invaded Trento last weekend. And of course, we were among them too. Our HQ is just one hour by car from Trento, so we absolutely had to be there.

The decisive action began in the last 50 kilometers of the 107 km race (8 laps of a 13.2km circuit). Our Soraya Paladin attacked with Ellen Van Dijk (Netherlands) Romy Kasper (Germany) and Aude Biannic (France).

Into the decisive section of the race it was Ellen Van Dijk who was first to attack, but Paladin closed the gap. Van Dijk attacked again shortly after and this time she dropped Paladin.

At that point, nothing else separated Ellen Van Dijk from the European Road Race title.

BIG, BIG SOLO WIN!!!

COLBRELLI'S SUNDAY

When in the morning we arrived at the team bus area there was silence, maybe even a bit of tension due to the importance of the race.

Everyone in the area was talking about Colbrelli's possible success, but in cycling you never know. Too many variables to consider, so most of the time it's almost impossible to predict with certainty the winner.

But sometimes the prediction is respected and this time it is one of them.

Colbrelli won the European Road Race and that's FOUR TITLES IN A ROW FOR ITALY.

Below a small selection of what we lived last Sunday.
