Italian rider Giacomo Garavaglia joins the Alberto Contador Foundation’s continental project for the 2020 season. The Lombard (Magenta, 3 July 1996) comes from Team Colpack, where he has shown good speed.
“The first thing that I want to say is that I’m really honored to race the text year in this team because I grew watching Basso and Contador on tv, so I have always taken them as examples of professionalism”, Garavaglia tells.
“I am also very motivated thanks to this big opportunity and I want to do my best to repay the trust that has been given to me”, adds a cyclist who has had the opportunity to compete in a high level event like the Tour of the Alps in 2019.
Garavaglia is the sixth rider to join the Kometa Cycling Team for next year (in 2020 the squad will be named Kometa-Xstra) after the arrivals of the Spaniards Alejandro Ropero and Sergio García, the also Italian Alessandro Fancellu, the Hungarian Erik Fetter and the Dane Mathias Larsen.
“I began riding bike when I was eleven but what is strange is that nobody in my family raced or rode bikes, I started just for passion: I simply liked the feeling that the bike could and can give me, sense of freedom, pain and satisfaction for the goal achieved”.
