Maria Costello talks to The Bike Insurer

When we were in Spain for the European Junior Cup’s annual training camp, we grabbed a quick chat with Maria Costello.

Maria was at Calafat in her role as mentor to the young riders participating in the championship, particularly the four female riders taking part in this season’s female riders event that runs parallel to the standard series.

As well as praising the whole EJC field, Maria reserved particular praise for the female riders, Avalon Biddle, Viktoria Kis, Anastassia Kovalenko and Laura Rodriguez.

According to Maria, all four riders will consistently challenge their male counterparts, and after the first two races, Maria’s predictions look spot on.
