Barbara Guarischi

Character and strength

ROAD CAPTAIN. The grit and intelligence of the great Italian domestiques of all time is part of the DNA of Lombardy’s Barbara Guarischi, who will complete, at the age of just 30, her eleventh season in pro cycling. A true warrior, one who has seen everything in the sport, whose experience is crucial, a big step forward, for a group mainly composed of young riders. Should you need to instil fear in your rivals, trust her – she’s pure character.

TALENT AND SPEED. Seven victories are part of Guarischi’s illustrious palmarès, the Italian yet to score a success in Blue -not that she hasn’t come close- 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 came into bunch or group sprints: a 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).

ONLY MISSING A WIN. Respect and much team spririt have been infused by Guarischi into her team-mates as one of the Telefónica-backed squad’s most respect assets. She’s came close to the win twice during 2020. The first one was in her Blue debut, 2nd behind Marta Bastianelli at the Vuelta CV Féminas. The second, after a long, painful pandemic stop -the virus affecting her dad-, came in Ardèche, where she was only under a bike length’s short to conquer a demanding Avignon stage. Will success come in 2021?
