Then the national team coaching staff and coach Dino Salvoldi trusted me and focused all my energy on the team’s follow-up test.The final was a swing of emotions against Germany: escalation to the finish riding, fear of not getting there, comfort and happiness at the finish line. The last laps, and the awareness that I made it through: the only regret is that in just 6 milliseconds we couldn’t manage to break the world record. I’m proud of what I did.”

“The sporting dream is to be a professional, race the great classics and maybe even win them. Now I will have more motivation for the future. Next year I will be young and I want to win the world and European championships on the track again. But I don’t want victories. It has become an obsession.”
