"Being from Italy, the Giro is very important to me, so pink has always been my favorite color. I’m happy now to have a new reason to love pink.”

Alberto’s first WorldTour win was a huge one. The Italian soloed to victory, off the back of a perfectly-played team effort, at the Tour of Flanders, one of cycling’s five Monuments. In 2020, Alberto continued to impress with numerous top ten finishes and one win at some of cycling’s biggest races. Alberto hails from Poggibonsi, near Florence, and loves racing in Italy in front of family and friends. In 2019, he took us around his hometown and shared with us why he loves going home.

The 2021 season is his sixth year with the team.
