Barbara Guarischi

ROAD CAPTAIN. The class of the great Italian domestiques of all time is part of the DNA of Lombardy’s Barbara Guarischi, who will be, at the age of just 29 -she will turn 30 in October 2020-, the most veteran rider of a Movistar Team made entirely of riders born in the 1990s. A true warrior, one who has seen everything in the sport, with more than a decade in pro squads all around the world, whose experience will be crucial, a big step forward, for a group of riders still with room for improvement. Should you need to instil fear in your rivals, trust her – she’s pure character.

TALENT TO WIN. Seven victories are part of Guarischi’s illustrious palmarès, the Italian coming from team Virtu after a solid 2019 season that included a stage win in May, on day one of the Lotto Thüringen Ladies Tour. Most of her victories, though, were achieved not by long breakaways as that one, rather than into bunch sprints she made a name for herself in the past as a fast woman she still is. She’s got one win in the Giro Rosa (2015), a victory each at the now-defunct Route de France and Trophée d’Or (2014) plus the classics of Borsele (2016), Bochum (2015) and London (2015).

TEST DRIVER. The fact that she’s gone through that many experiences and teams means that Guarischi had already covered thousands of kilometers on the same combination of bike + components (Canyon + SRAM) which the Movistar Team will be using for the first time in 2020. Actually, the Italian had been part of the structure named after those two brands for three years, before signing with Virtu (2018-2019). Her long CV is completed with spells in Italian squads in her early career, including structures still currently active, such as Alé Cipollini and Vaiano.
