The Italian National Team opened the European Track Championships with an exciting gold medal in the first day of competitions. Martina Fidanza is now the Scratch European champion, thanks to a sensational finale. The Italian athlete made a spectacular comeback, overtaking the fugitive Belarusian with just 100 meters to go.

It’s been a race that the rider from Bergamo herself defined as difficult and challenging, but she managed to keep self-confidence and focus, gaining a success that further enriches the palmares of this young cycling talent.

The new European champion, who chose to wear the Sidi Wire 2 model for her cycling season on both the road and the track, said: “If this shoe is the most used by sprinters, there must be a reason. To me, it performs wonderfully. On the track: it is reliable, safe and gives me the stamina I need to endure extreme efforts and sprints. This time, I had to recover almost a lap on my opponent and had the strength to contest the sprint. I was able to count on the stiffness and lightness of the sole that allows me to manage the changes of intensity without worrying. I also honestly love the design: it's snappy and makes you want to race and win. "
