"I don’t come from a sporty family. I chose the bicycle because I didn’t have one and I wanted to join the kids in my village so I could pass time together with them. So that was the way and then, yes, it was just for fun to start with. And then someone said to me, well, Eugenia either you start training or you’d be better off stopping. So I started living it out seriously, and here I am."
"When I was a little girl, I was so proud when I raced with a Campagnolo product for the first time. It was like thinking, Wow, I deserve it, I deserve to have Campagnolo. So it was something special. And now that I’m racing with Campagnolo for the third season, I’m very happy."
