Gaia Realini is the archetypal climber. Standing at 150cm (4’11”) her physique is a concentration of power that is unleashed when the road climbs. In the past two years her performances in the toughest stages of the Giro d'Italia were impressive and caught the attention of many people in cycling. Thanks to this, she seized a chance to move up to the World Tour when an offer was extended by Trek-Segafredo. At the age of 21, after growing in a small Italian team, Gaia is ready to try her hand at the center stage. The first goal is to build up her experience and confidence, starting in the most suitable terrain, stage races. The curiosity to see her grow in the next three years with Trek-Segafredo, is huge.
