Also at the world cyclocross championships in Valkenburg, Gioele Bertolini has shown to be the strongest italian cyclocross rider. Also starting from third row, he has been protagonist of a great performance reaching the 6° position at few seconds from Lars Van Der Haar. What it is straordinary is that Bertolini was the sole not belgium/dutch rider in the top 10. The last best result for an italian rider in the elite race was from treviso 2018, always with a Guerciotti's rider: Marco Aurelio Fontana.
Also the others Selle Italia Guerciotti riders took good results. Jakob Dorigoni reached the top 10, in 8th position.
Francesca Baroni, in the women under 23 (at her first year in the cathegory) , reached the 11° place at few seconds from the top 10. Baroni showed again to be the new talent of italian cyclocross and for sure she will be able to fight for a world podium.
