“What a satisfaction to be able to get on my car and reach the velodrome again for my training!”
To prepare the track world championships, the last important race before the lockdown, I was used to go to the Montichiari velodrome to train even four or five days a week. Imagine how strange it was not being able to ride there for almost three months!
The velodrome is a strange place for those who don’t know it, it gives you incomparable emotions. Speed, voices, noises, everything is exalted, pure adrenaline and freedom.
I feel the same sense of freedom also by training in the open air and why not even walking along the lake.
I missed the places and my habits; my life is finally returning to what I want.
