The Italian cyclist has covered various topics, below are all her lyrics.
The class of 1997 began by talking about this new type of track adventure: “I am happy with this experience in the Champions League. For me, this is the first participation and I discovered a great and high-level event that is difficult to match. I set out with the main goal of having fun and working on the right track to prepare for next season, but it is clear that I always give my best.”
Barbieri then followed up by assessing the situation with his position in the overall standings: “I have a competitive spirit, I was expecting to be higher in the year (now Blue is 9th, ed), around 4th or 5th. It won’t be easy to recover now but I will try in London.”
Among the many commitments that Modena has undertaken are those with the Italian national team and with her team, namely Liv Racing Xstra: “I was on a group retreat with the national team and in Noto, from Sicily and on Friday I flew to Paris, now I’m going home and next weekend I’ll be in London. The Champions League Grand Final promises to be amazing and very exciting, the velodrome will be full and my parents will be There is also to support me. After two days in the UK, I am waiting for the withdrawal with the Liv Racing Xstra to prepare for the new season.”
Barbieri concluded his talk about his goals in 2023: “In February the European Track Championships are in Grenchen and that’s obviously my goal, I still want to be the champion.”
