Alberto made the step up to WorldTour in 2020 after a successful season in 2019 where he took several wins, including the U23 European Road Race title and his first pro victory at the Czech Cycling Tour.
An active youngster, Alberto played basketball for six years but wasn’t tall enough to continue playing. Alongside basketball, he used to also play football or ride his motorbikes, with Alberto a self-confessed speed lover. Originally also a mountain biker for fun, he soon joined a local club at 14 years-old after watching the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia on TV with his grandparents; although his family were initially hesitant as no one else rode a road bike. Alberto was soon able to convince them though and he hasn’t looked back since.
Competitive at heart, Alberto always strives for more.
Alberto has already experienced the thrill of racing in the elite bunch but the grounded Italian wants to absorb as much information as possible in his first year with the team.
Doing just that, Alberto already tasted success in his first year with the team in 2020, winning a stage at the Jayco Herald Sun Tour before picking up several other top results throughout the year. 2021 saw Alberto take on his first Grand Tour at the Vuelta a España where he claimed an impressive five top five finishes, including three podium places.
