Natnael Tesfatsion might not be a household name yet, but as one of Eritrea’s latest examples of young talent, he soon might be! He joins compatriot Amanuel Ghebreigzabhier, who is already settled in the team. 23-year-old Natnael’s strength lies in climbing, although he has a handy turn of speed when the finish line is in sight. He had already been on Trek-Segafredo’s radar for a couple of years, so when he became available General Manager Luca Guercilena didn’t hesitate to offer him a contract. Trek-Segafredo was Natnael’s ‘dream team’ because as a child he raced around Asmara, Eritrea’s capital, on a Trek bike. His next dream is to win a stage at the Giro d’Italia.
