Matteo
Moschetti

When young sprinter Matteo Moschetti began to stockpile victories in 2018 with the U23 Kometa Cycling team - ending with nine for the season - Trek-Segafredo wasted no time in signing him to a contract. Moschetti describes himself as a rouleur with good top speed and would like, above all, to win a big Classic. He is still gaining experience against the WorldTour's fastest finishers but proved his potential with a second place in the steep Hatta Dam stage finish at the UAE Tour. Matteo had more than his fair share of crashes resulting in injury in his first year in the WorldTour and missed a good part of the 2019 season. He quickly made amends, beginning 2020 with two wins in his first two races at the Challenge Mallorca. Moschetti again endured lousy luck in his next race, Étoile de Bessèges, where he crashed at high speed on the third stage and fractured his hip socket. Matteo is ready to put all the bad luck behind him and reveal his talent in 2021.
