Simone Raccani

Pro team

Here is one of the most promising young men, here is a bet on the future: in 2023 for the boy born in Thiene on March 2, 2001, the doors of professionalism will open: he will wear our colors, and the desire to repay the trust is already very strong. Raised in the wonderful forge of talent that is Zalf Euromobil Fior, his excellent results earned him the call from Quick-Step, which wanted him as a stagiaire. The 2022 saw him fight with the best and hit important placings: 11th overall at the Giro di Sicilia (with 14th place in the stage with arrival on Mount Etna), 15th overall at the Giro d’Italia U23, again 3rd at the Giro della Valle d’Aosta. Now, he is expected to be confirmed with the EOLO-KOMETA jersey. “I can’t wait,” Simone told us, “already last year there had been contact but I had preferred to do another year with the Under 23: now, the time has come. And I think this is really the right team for me: it was born recently but it has made huge steps forward and is growing more and more, the environment seems wonderful, it is the right place to grow and to hit results. I am a climber who can defend myself in time trials if they are not too flat, however, I love long and hard races, those with a lot of elevation gain.” Simone, started cycling as a child: “It all started by chance, I had a cousin who rode a bike and when it was time for me to choose a sport it was natural: I got on the bike, and I never got off because I liked it right away. As an Italian, I’m a Nibali fan, but I won’t hide the fact that being on Ivan Basso and Alberto Contador’s team is something unique.” When he’s not pedaling, Simone likes simplicity: “I stay with my girlfriend Nicole, I go out with friends, when I can I eat a pizza which is my favorite dish (the one with bresaola, arugula and grana cheese).”
