New and important signing for the 2020 Bardiani-CSF. Matteo Pelucchi, sprinter with sixteen victories among the professionals, will wear the jersey of the #GreenTeam in the upcoming season.
“We are very satisfied to to add a strong sprinter such as Pelucchi to the roster of the new Bardiani-CSF” says team manager Roberto Reverberi. “When we met, we found a rider with a great desire to return to stand out, as he has already done in his career. With his signing we have added a very important rider to the future #GreenTeam”.
Rider born in 1989, Pelucchi became pro-rider in 2011 with Geox-TMC. After an experience in France with Europcar, he landed in the World Tour circuit with IAM Cycling and Bora-Hansgrohe. In the current season he is wearing the jersey of Androni-Sidermec. In his palmares shine one stage at Tirreno-Adriatico (2014), two stages at Tour de Pologne (2015) and Clasica de Almeria (2011). Apart from successes, Pelucchi has gained experience and collected prestigious results facing an important calendar all over the world, with four participations to the big laps (three Giro d’Italia and one Vuelta a Espana).
“I am very happy for the agreement reached with Bardiani-CSF,” says Pelucchi. “Since the first meeting I understand there was unity of purpose. We both want to live an important season, full of satisfactions. It’s a great opportunity for me. The goal is to find continuity in results and in performances. For different reasons, in the last seasons, despite being competitive, constancy has been lacking. However, I am convinced that I can return to the highest levels and Bardiani-CSF is the perfect team to succeed”.
“I thank Bruno and Roberto Reverberi for welcoming me in the #GreenTeam family. I’m also happy to meet again Mirco Rossato, who was already my director at the U23 time with Trevigiani, thanks to whom I have collected so many good results. Let’s hope it’s a good omen”.
Pelucchi is the fifth new face of Bardiani-CSF for 2020 after Giovanni Lonardi, Filippo Zaccanti and the neo-professionals Alessandro Monaco and Filippo Fiorelli.
