Vittoria Guazzini, a legacy between track and road cycling – OA Sport

buzzword in Cycling current is multidisciplinary. Possibility to establish training in different disciplines such as combining activity on the track with activity on the road. Also thanks to this synergy, Bel Paese’s pink cycling is currently experiencing a golden period, one that may not have happened in the past. Surely one of the spearheads in this movement Vittoria Jawazinigreat hope for Paris 2024 in both disciplines (really, track and road).

Vittoria Guazzini was born in Pontedera on 12-26-2000 and is a member of the Fiamme Oro Sports Group. He started his cycling activity at the age of seven with the Velo Club Seano One jersey. In 2019 he debuted in the elite class with the Valcar PBM team, so he was only 18 years old. But this season, she’s landed on the World Tour, in the ranks of FDJ-Nouvelle-Aquitaine-Futuroscope, where she found her compatriot Marta Cavalli, the other big champion of this extraordinary 2022 women’s cycling blues.
The French-born team’s project is very clear: Vitoria leads to be one of the best cyclists in the world and especially in time trials, utilizing his amazing skills as a toaster. Azzurri’s coaches (Paolo Sangalli for the road and Marco Velo for the time trial) are also working in this direction.

In fact, the 21-year-old from Tuscany, the champion with the blue chasing quartet already in Tokyo 2020, has very rich breaks between road and track in the junior class and in her first year as an elite she won European titles in Madison (with Elisa Balsamo) and in the pursuit squad Quartet. His magical year in the junior class was 2018, with a stratospheric season in which he won 8 gold medals on the bar, including the 3 world titles on the track (Omnium, individual and team pursuit) and 5 gold medals in the championships. Always on track plus gold in the women’s individual trials at the European Road Championships in Brno.

In the following years, Guazzini’s successes continued, despite the epidemic. Among the highlights is the European road time trial title, this time in the U-23 category, beating his top competitor since the minor categories, Germany’s Hannah Ludwig. But perhaps her move this season to a World Tour team has made her fully aware of her own potential: The fact of leaving the comfort zone and choosing to go to France began to pay off with winning the Women’s Tour of Brisbane, a prestigious race on the Women’s World Circuit, as well as the impressive gold medal in the time trial at the Mediterranean Games in Les Now.

Then in July, the European silver medals arrived in time and in the under-23 race online.Italian Echord collapsed at 3’24″ 503.

Vittoria Jawazini It still has enough room for improvement, and time trial is a specialty that fits and suits its characteristics. His dream, in no uncertain terms, will be a medal in Paris 2024. Perhaps even more than one medal, considering also the endurance tests on the track.. Vittoria is a heritage of Italian sport, the future belongs to it.
