Abano Terme (Pd)
Annalisa Baraldo, born in 1981 in Abano Terme (Padua), found a love for cycling thanks to Obiettivo3. She works at the National Association of Italian City Councils. She was involved in competitive running from a young age, and wanted to take part in a marathon.
In 2017, she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, at which point she discovered sport as therapy. Sport is fun but also an outlet, and she started racing again, but on a bike. In June 2018, after meeting Obiettivo3 at the recruitment event at Velodromo Monti, she turned her cycling career around and is dreaming of ever more prestigious goals.
