Sofia Bertizzolo (Team Wilier Breganze) won the 3rd Da Moreno Trophy today in Cittiglio (Varese). This was the first International edition of the race which all its fans know as the Mini-World Cup. Bertizzolo beat French rider, Juliette Labous in the final sprint. In third place, just 3 seconds behind was Sofia Beggin (Team Wieler Breganze), who came in just before another French cyclist, Maelle Grossetete. The biggest group crossed the finish line 14 seconds later: “I’m delighted – said Bertizzolo after crossing the line – my team and I worked on the climb and then I tried to break away towards the end. They caught up with me though, so I tried again in the final sprint and it worked”. Sofia Bertizzolo will turn 18 on 21 August next. She is reigning European and Italian champion, Italian track champion, second in the world road championships and second in the Italian time trials.
