After exploding onto the scene in 2019 as a first-year junior, where he claimed a spectacular 20 wins, Marco announced himself as a rider to watch for the future. Upon joining the team in 2020, he has gone on to slowly progress through the ranks and gain valuable experience as he develops and grows as not only a rider but also as a person too.
Inspired to take up the sport as a youngster by his dad who was a recreational cyclist, Marco went to a local club team and soon fell in love with racing. After some initial success in local races, the confident youngster became aware of his talents and continued to train even more, dedicating himself to the sport.
“I really need the competition so that’s one of the reasons why I like cycling. I’ve always wanted to win, even when I was younger and playing football, I wasn’t the best loser. I also like the more relaxing side of the sport too; being outdoors on your own or with a few mates and just enjoying nature.”
Describing himself as “spontaneous”, “funny” and “ambitious”, it’s clear that Marco doesn’t lack any self-confidence (or at least front-facing self-confidence) but behind the façade of an ambitious youngster; there is a wiser and calculated head growing – Marco knows what he wants and how he will achieve it.
