Francesca Baroni, after her previous performances in the World Cup, was one of the favorites for a podium in the world championship. Unfortunately, the talented athlete from Versilia had to settle for a beautiful 7th place. The race track, in the race reserved for women under 23, turned out to be too heavy for Francesca’s characteristics, moreover the French athlete Riberolle proved to be really stronger than her. Francesca has always had a race among the top positions, but unfortunately without ever really fighting for the final podium.
However, this result does not spoil an extraordinary season where Francesca was the winner in all competitions.
Next year, where she will still be under 23, she will be able to try again to conquer a world podium in Ostende in Belgium.
In the under 23 race Dorigoni, certainly not during the day (and certainly disturbed by the troubled news of his team on the road), he never entered the race and was then out of the top 30 positions.
