The Italian Women Elite category continues to thrill with its successes at the European Track Championships taking place these days in Plodiv, Bulgaria.
Elisa Balsamo is the new European champion in the individual Omnium specialty. This medal, together with last week’s victory at the Vuelta, definitively catapultes her to international cycling.
After controlling her opponents during the time trial, the new European champion literally dominated in the other three races, taking the Scratch, the elimination and the final points race that she won with 10 laps ahead.
It was a day full of cheers and joy also because of Martina Alzini getting the silver medal in the individual pursuit.
Elisa Balsamo is wearing the Sidi Wire 2, a shoe model continuously in the spotlight thanks to the contribution of the Sidi athletes. "Athletes always need great concentration and cannot think that something is going to go wrong at a technical level. With Sidi I know that I can race focusing only on the competition, and the Wire2 are really a guarantee” Elisa says. “I like them because they are ultra-light and comfortable, given the ease of adjustment of their locking system also. The smallest details always make the difference, especially when you are riding and you don't want to lose precious seconds" she concludes.
