Team Greens Marie Claire Aquilina landed a very prestigious result at the UCI World Cycling Tour event in Trento earlier this month. Aquilina took part in the Leggendaria Charlie Gaul Italy’s leg  of the UWCT. The event consisted of a twenty kilometer time trial where Aquilina rode strongly to third place. Still not fully recovered from her Time Trial effort Aquilina took her chances in the 140km road race two days later, she rode to a credible 4th place in her category. The gruelling race finished on the Mondone, one of Italy’s legendary cycling climbs. Aquilina has had a very successful season on the international scene clinching no less than 3 wins at the Sicily Granfondo circuit as well as the red jersey at this year’s Tour ta’ Malta before trying her luck on mainland Italy. Opting for more international exposure Aquilina forfeited her opportunity to race the local national championship. Following her results in Trento Aquilina will now prepare for the UWCT World championship in Slovenia next August before returning to other Granfondo races in Sicily.
