THE RENAISSANCE OF ANNA TREVISI, 2ND IN AUSTRALIA!
Seven months have gone by since that bad day when the cyclist from Reggiolo (Reggio Emilia, Italy) was involved in a brutal car crash on the A22 Highway near her home: it was a hot afternoon when suddenly Anna’s career could stop. Her ankle was in pieces in this accident: the urgent surgery where the doctor put in her left leg a device which fixes her bones, then the long rehab. A neverending suffering since Anna reached her first goal: she can walk again. Then the second: back on a bike and restart the training.
In November she has been confirmed in the Team renamed Alé BTC Ljubljana and in January she officially makes her comeback to race in Australia. One day in the breakaway at the Santos Women’s Tour Down Under, the other days have been used for an intense training to reach the race pace. The condition improves and today (in the night in Italy), she obtained a sensational podium in Shepparton, at the end of the Stage 1 of the Women’s Herald Sun Tour, just behind the Cuban Arlenis Sierra in the final sprint. The #YellowFluoOrange Team was extremely happy, the hugs of Annas’ teammates and the news that reach the rest of the team in Italy right after the end of the race.
Quotes by Anna Trevisi: “The team race with intelligence today, we were always in the front. I want to thank everybody, we needed a day like this after the bad luck at the Cadel Evans Road Race.”
Quotes by the Team Manager Fortunato Lacquaniti: “The team is very happy for this news. The work, the constance and the sacrifices pay always back and Anna is a very professional rider. She risked her career seven months ago, so today we do not only celebrate our first podium of the year but also her renaissance.”
The Herald Sun Tour ends tomorrow with the stage 2, which ends with the uphill finish of Falls Creek at 1530 meters.
