Letizia Paternoster has signed with the newly created Trek women's team. The rider will make the move after being in Astana's women team for a year.

The Italian has an impressive career in track cycling, where she has taken gold, silver and bronze medals at the European Championships in disciplines like the Team Pursuit and the Omnium, as well as winning bronze medals at the World Championships in the Madison and the team pursuit events.

The 19-year-old has taken also the title of the national junior Road Championships in the road race and the time trial, and she took the overall victory at the GP Elsy Jacobs in 2018.

"I am excited and hugely motivated to join a big international team like Trek," she commented. "My career at the Elite level has started pretty well this year with the Astana Team, now I have a new opportunity to keep growing and learning from a group of strong and competitive teammates."

Paternoster will combine road and track with an eye on the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. "I am also happy that Trek will allow me to keep competing on the track, in addition to the road calendar, with the Tokyo 2020 Olympics in mind," the Italian explained.

"A new exciting phase of my career is starting now, and I look forward to giving the best of me. I am grateful for the trust Trek Factory Racing has put in me, and I am determined to reward them by living up to the expectations and bringing valuable results to the team."
