Biography

Born in Corneliano d’Alba, the experienced rider raced the last two seasons in the French team Arkea: he’s one of Eolo-Kometa’s new signings. Rosa started his cycling career in the mountain bike world, a discipline in which he ranked in the top-ten (8th) at the U23 World Championships in 2011. From there he began to focus on the road and after one season in the amateur field he made the breakthrough with Androni Giocattoli. He then raced two years with Astana and three with Team SKY, now Team Ineos, the team he came to the French team from. “I really wanted to come back to a more Italian atmosphere, I missed it. I was in France for two years and before that I spent three years with a British team. And before that at Astana, although it had a lot of Italian presence, in the end it was a Kazakh team. I got to know different cycling realities and for 2022 I wanted to take this step. French cycling is a world apart, with its own different calendar, a very high level and many national riders. Knowing other realities is always enriching”. Diego Rosa’s resume includes a win in the 2015 Milan-Turin, a stage in the 2016 Tour of the Basque Country and overall in the 2018 Settimana Coppi e Bartali. In 2020, he was third at Trofeo Laigueglia and 10th at Strade Bianche. In the Giro di Lombardia, one of cycling’s five monuments, he finished second in 2016 and fifth in 2015. His most beautiful victory is the Milan-Turin won at his home, his favorite dish is the lasagne his wife makes for him (but with his grandmother’s sauce…) and his hobby is motorcycles. The place of his heart? The Langhe and Roero, to cross by bike or motorcycle.
