EF Education–NIPPO (United States) - Press Release: Alberto’s a monumental racer and a friend to teammates.
“That’s why I decided to stay. Our fight, our commitment, our goals are difficult to get, but we can do it together.”
For Alberto Bettiol, EF Education-NIPPO is a second family. The 27-year-old Tuscan began his career with the outfit in 2014, when Cannondale was the title sponsor. He has since developed into one of the most exciting racers in the sport. During his early years, he earned a series of good results in one-day races, before spending a year away in 2018. He then returned home in 2019 and won his first monument and first professional race: the Tour of Flanders. Now, after a scintillating Giro d’Italia, in which he won the race’s longest stage with a brilliant solo attack over the hills near Stradella and rode like a lion for Hugh Carthy, he has signed a contract to stay with the team for seasons to come.
