Biography

Born in Lombardy but with roots in adoring Tuscany, Luca Wackermann is a versatile rider, with nine seasons already of experience in his career essentially developed in structures of the professional continental category. Endowed with a good speed lead, always with an offensive spirit by flag of which he has left evidence on several occasions, such as in the 2013 Clásica de San Sebastián: then enrolled in the Lampre team, he rode all day in the break and was not caught until the last twenty kilometres to the end, but was able to climb the podium as the winner of the mountain classification. His surname comes from Germany and he is the son of grandparents from Bavaria who moved to Tuscany. In a season as atypical as this 2020, the Italian was one of the riders who was able to shine with the return of the competition with his stage victory and his victory in the final general classification of the last French Tour de Limousin. A success that reinforced his presence, for the first time, in the Giro d’Italia team. Fifth in the second stage of the Corsa Rosa, with a final in Agrigento, he also made headlines for the serious injuries he suffered two days later when he hit the fences in the finish area that displaced the air current generated by a helicopter flying very low. “Fortunately it is now forgotten. I’m already training normally, although the first twenty days after the accident were hard. I would like to run the Giro again, if I get the chance. This year I walked well, I felt good and I think I could have done very well; so, given the circumstances, I was left with a little bit of anger. Another race that catches my attention is the Strade Bianche, the Eroica, where I have already participated on a couple of occasions,” he explained. Wackermann takes advantage of her free time to be with the family, relaxes with home maintenance, some film or watching cartoons with her daughter and has some culinary concerns that she channels into making sweets or Neapolitan pizza dough.
