It’s an excellent feeling to set a target, create a plan with my team and my coach, and then nail it – I won the Giro Rosa!

This victory has given me confidence in working toward future goals such as the World Championships or maybe even the Tokyo Olympic Games. I know now that I can be mentally and physically prepared for such significant endeavours.
