Double tricolor: Baroni and Dorigoni are Italian champions

Also in 2020, at the Italian cyclocross championships in Schio, the Selle Italia Guerciotti Elite Team buys up Italian titles and for the fifth consecutive year signs a tricolor double, also winning for the fourth year the most important title such as the elite men one.

Dorigoni, in the end showing up at the starting line in the elite category (he is still under 23), signs a success that in the past only his former teammate Gioele Bertolini (yesterday rival) had managed to achieve. The clash was obviously between Dorigoni and Bertolini: after a first phase of study, Dorigoni put the accelerator on and after half the race there was no more challenge, reaching the finish line alone and winning his seventh Italian title in a row.

In the women’s under 23 race, Francesca Baroni started badly, first, and then delayed by a chain jump, but she managed to remain calm, knowing that she was the strongest in that type of path. Francesca recovered lap after lap up to catch Sara Casasola (always in the lead up to that moment), coming to break her and win alone. Francesca, in addition to winning the first tricolor title in the Guerciotti jersey, has signed a beautiful “treble” after the victory in the Giro d’Italia cross and the master cross.
