Valentina Crows win gold inWomen's Junior XCO ai MTB European Championships by Anadia. This is medal number two of this expedition for the blue group led by Mirko Celestine, after the bronze in yesterday's Team Relay. An even more important metal, the most precious, won by one of the most promising athletes in the Italian off-road scene, capable of leaving behind two champions in the category such as the German Carla Hahn (silver) and the Norwegian Kamilla Aasebo (bronze).

Valentina Crows in the last 12 months she graduated as Italian champion in Short Track, cyclocross and XCO (the third consecutive Italian title), took home a world silver and a continental bronze in Team Relay, but also the European silver in cyclocross juniors. With today's gold medal, the Valtellinese from Tirano, born in 2005 in the Trinx Factory Team line-up, confirmed her leadership in the offroad environment, arriving punctually for the appointment with glory, proving not only to live up to expectations, but above all a beacon of hope for the Italian off-road vehicle of the future, given its young age.

Valentina Corva European Champion

“He ran an exemplary race” word of the CT Mirko Celestino. Which adds: “She led from start to finish, so much so that I was afraid she was overdoing it. I am delighted to be proved wrong: she had the right leg and she earned this gold medal from the very first lap”. A positive race for the whole group, with Elisa Lanfranchi in ninth square and Maria Celestino tenth: “I'm happy with the good team performance, with three girls in the top 10. It was a super race and Valentina's triumph is the icing on the cake: when a medal arrives, self-esteem and the value of the trip rise, repaying all our work. It is a victory that has raised the morale of the whole group”.

The third day of competition began with the men's junior event, won by the Danish Withen Philipsen. Well the blues with Elian Paccagnella, who closes the race in fifth position: “We fought for the podium until the last lap, but then Elian had to give up on the last lap. Too bad, apart from the new European champion, the opponents were all within his reach. But we did our best and we have nothing to regret." concludes Celestino.
