The 22-year-old Veneto athlete from Camposampiero is an all-rounder rider known as a team man, a tireless worker, able to pedal wind in his face and with the spirit of an attacker, a true lover of escapes. Winner of the Route d’Oro in 2018, fifth place at Piccolo Lombardia in 2019, he is preparing to make his second participation in the Giro Under23 in 2020. Raised in the myth of Contador, he is inspired by De Marchi and De Gendt, loves the races of the north, but is ready to build his own career and style:
“I am truly grateful to the Reverberi family for the trust they have placed in me. Bardiani CSF Faizanè is the perfect team for a young Italian rider who wants to grow and gain experience. I feel I have made all the right steps in the youth teams, also gaining international experience and facing both important youth competitions, such as the Piccolo Lombardia and the Giro Under23, as well as races with the pros. Last year was not very lucky for me, because of the mononucleosis, the shoulder injury and finally the international situation that has taken away many opportunities to race. Now I am focused on the last but important events of the season with my current team and from 2021 I will be happy to put myself at the service of my new team. “
