Bardiani CSF Faizanè is assured of a very interesting rider, who in the 2023 season will become professional with the team: it is Mattia Petrucci. Grown up in the Groupama FDJ Continental and in the Colpack Team, he gained the right experience to be immediately decisive among the professionals.

From Verona, born in 2000, able to climb, but with a good sprint. Mattia Petrucci after completing his last year as Under23 goes professional in Bardiani CSF Faizanè and immediately aims to leave his mark.

15 victories as Juniores, victories and important placements in the Under23, 3rd and 5th at the national championships in the last two years, 2nd at Piccolo Lombardia in 2021, 3rd at S. Vendemmiano, 3rd in one stage of the Giro d’Italia U23 on the arrival of Pinzolo.

The profile of Mattia Petrucci is full of results and prestigious placements in each category, which demonstrate his great consistency in performance and his constantly growing path. Precisely for this reason Bardiani CSF Faizanè has chosen to focus on this neo-pro rider, who has already gained experience both in Italy and abroad.

These are the first words of Mattia Petrucci about his transition to professionalism:

“I started cycling from G6 category, thanks to the passion that my dad handed down to me. I have always had fun with cycling, even if only from when I become 16 years old I started to collect important results., But going professional is a dream that comes true for which I thank the Reverberi family.

As an athlete I feel that I am still physically transforming myself, I think I can be a rider who can keep strong in climb, even if I’m not a climber, and I’m fast enough to win in small groups, I feel like a stage hunter. My goal in these first years in professionalism is to deserve to participate to the Giro d’Italia, which for an Italian athlete I think is the most beautiful and exciting race to participate in. I know I have to do mine first, but I feel mentally and physically ready for the transition, I will always try to be competitive to deserve the trust of the team and my teammates. I thank Colpack, the president Colleoni and Bevilacqua team manager who supported me, especially in this last year, where despite some physical problems they have never let me lack their support.”
