Elena Pirrone has extended her contract with Astana Women's Team for another season. The Italian rider will start her second year at the Kazakh formation.

Pirrone just finished her first year at the highest level of women's cycling in which she was selected by Italy to ride the road race and the time trial at the World Championships. The rider also took the eight place at the U23 European Championship and took three victories and two second places at the Italian national calendar.

"It has been a very good season for me, together with the team we studied a good plan and everything went well," commented Pirrone. "The participation to the World Championships was one of my goals because I knew the route could be good for me, even if at the end the climb was a bit harder than expected.

"For next year I want to continue to improve, working also on the time trials: the fourth place at the National Championship gave me a big confidence, and almost every stage race has a prologue or a time trial and doing well means also a good results in the general classification or maybe fighting for the young riders jersey I always missed by a little this year."
