Elisa is a professional cyclist since 2017. She rides for Valcar PBM and for Gruppo Sportivo Fiamme Oro of the Italian police force Polizia di Stato. In her junior years she achieved some good results, the most important are the four gold medals at the Junior World Championships: in 2015 she won the Scratch (a track specialty), in 2016 she won the Omnium and the Team Pursuit (other two track specialties) and, in the same year, she also won the Road World Championship.

In 2017 she moved in the élite category and got some interesting achievements: the gold medal at the Under 23 European Championship in Omnium and Team Pursuit and the participation with the National Team at the Èlite Road World Championship. During the winter season she raced four (out of five) Track World Cups and, with her National Team mates, she won the general classification in Madison and Team Pursuit. In 2018 Elisa won one of the most important and prestigious medals of her career, the bronze medal at the Èlite Track World Championship (Team Pursuit).

The 2018/2019 season Track World Cups were particularly positive with two bronzes, a silver, a gold medals and the Italian record in the Team Pursuit and a bronze in the madison. In 2019 she got four road wins, one of them at the last stage of the Tour of California, a World Tour race!

Elisa was then called up by the National Team for the second edition of the European Olympic Games, taking home a gold medal in the Team Pursuit and a bronze in the Omnium. The 2019/2020 Winter World Cups started in the best way with a bronze medal in the Team Pursuit in Minsk. Her 2020 season on the track was crowned with a wonderful bronze medal in the Madison at the World Championships in Berlin, certainly the most important medal of her cycling life so far.

Thanks to the excellent results she was able to get a pass for the Olympic Games in all three endurance specialties of the track: Team Pursuit, Madison and Omnium.

Although the 2020 season was unusual, Elisa managed to achieve several important results: on the road side the victory of the Road European U23 Championship and the victory of the last stage of the Ceratizit Challenge by La Vuelta; on the track side the silver medal at the Èlite European Championship in Team Pursuit (ended with the new Italian record of 4.13.632) and the two golds, won in the same event, in the Omnium and Madison.
