Letizia Paternoster was one of the most talented Junior athletes to come out of Italy in some time. She is widely known for her results on the track but secured three road victories in her first professional season with Team Astana in 2018.  Letizia made the transfer from Junior track racing to mixing it up with the big stars in elite road cycling look easy. She won her first pro race GP della Liberazione but winning a stage and the overall in the Festival Elsy Jacobs (Luxembourg) put her on everyone's radar.  Letizia signed with Trek-Segafredo for their inaugural 2019 season and won the team's maiden race, sprinting to victory in Stage one at the Tour Down Under.
