After the reconnaissance of these days, after evaluating the technical aspects, Paolo Sangalli and Daniele Bennati have dissolved the reserves and communicated the names of the Azzurri who will run the women’s Elite (Saturday 24th) and Elite (Sunday 25th) in-line tests.

As for the women’s national team, Silvia Persico (blue n. 92) and Silvia Zanardi (blue n. 93) made their debut in an elite road world championship. Paolo Sangalli: “Our goal is to defend the title and at the same time honor the new U23 category. The presence of Vittoria Guazzini and Silvia Zanardi is a guarantee from this point of view. On an absolute level, it is useless to hide: the Dutch are still the favorites. We can count on a strong team with Elisa Balsamo and Elisa Longo Borghini as points of reference. Even the two U23s, if needed, will work for the team. “

Daniele Bennati’s first national team is characterized by 4 riders who make their debut in an online World Cup: Edoardo Affini (veteran for time trials, Azzurri No. 254), Samuele Battistella (world champion in 2019 among the U23s , blue n. 255), Nicola Conci (blue n. 256) and Lorenzo Rota (blue n. 257). The main feature is that of being a training able to offer different solutions. Matteo Sobrero and Filippo Zana will be the reserves. Daniele Bennati explains the choices: “Given that both must in all respects still be considered in the world championship, given that there are two days left and that anything can still happen, Matteo has already raced two races, while Filippo has technical characteristics, of all those present, less suitable for this type of route. Zana is young and with great qualities: I am sure that in the future he will have his chance at a world championship. “ Regarding the presence of a chronoman like Affini, the Tuscan technician clarifies: “Edoardo has been working for the captains of his team since the beginning of the year. He has the experience and the ability to do a fundamental job, especially in the first 200 kilometers of the race. “

Finally, Bennati also indicates the tips: “The team will work to put Bettiol, Bagioli and Trentin in the best conditions. We are not starting as the team to beat and this could be an advantage. “

Marino Amadori also dissolved the last doubts and indicated the five riders who tomorrow afternoon will try to defend the title won last year by Filippo Baroncini. “Always sorry to leave someone out (Busatto e Piganzoli, ndr) because both have been shown to have leg and condition. But there are five of us running and I think this is the best team given the characteristics of the course. “
