"This is the culmination of an incredible year," - Silvia Persico takes her first victory in WorldTour event

It is a big day for Silvia Persico, She won her first victory at the WorldTour event, winning the fourth stage of the Ceratizit Challenge by La Vuelta.

"This is the culmination of an incredible year," Persico said. She also reveals that she would have skipped the race without the support of her teammates. "I actually didn't feel good at the beginning, but my teammates kept motivating me to go for it. It is my last race with them, so I am very happy that I could finish it for them. Luckily, it wasn't so fast in the beginning. But that allowed Anna Kiesenhofer to take a big lead. Chapeau to her," explained Persico.

she admits she is satisfied with a single victory and won't attempt to win the final stage but will instead focus on helping teammates cross the finish line first. "But that's not going to be anything for me. Chiara Consonni and Karolina Kumiega are the sprinters on the team. I hope we can end this season with one more win for the team,” concluded Persico.
