Fresh to the team in 2023, Mauro joins his older brother Marco within the ranks of Team DSM. Coming from an active family, Mauro was inspired by his dad, who was and still is an avid recreational cyclist, with the family going on several trips to Italy when they were younger: taking their bikes and going on hikes through the mountains with both their dad and mum.
Building up his passion for the sport, he joined a local club and from there his love for cycling only grew further, becoming the main focal point for young Mauro. Despite doing running and walking race events in the winter, Mauro was always desperate to get back on the bike.
Fascinated with travel and exploring new places and cultures, the bike isn’t just a tool towards becoming an athlete for Mauro, he also very much enjoys the freedom that travelling and training on two wheels brings.
