The EOLO-KOMETA Cycling Team is reinforced by Mattia Frapporti and David Bais
The first adventure of the Contador Foundation in the ProTeam category continues to finalize the making of its squad. The Italians Mattia Frapporti and Davide Bais are the latest additions to the new EOLO-KOMETA Cycling Team. Both of them have the chance to have at least one brother in the professional squad: Mattia in the case of Davide Bais and Marco and Simona in the case of Mattia Frapporti.
Mattia Frapporti is the more experienced of the two and has committed himself for one season. The rider from Gavardo (1994) has been a professional since 2014 and for the last four seasons he has remained with the Androni Giocattoli structure.
“It has been a very difficult 2020 in which I personally have not been able to compete much, although we started very soon in the Tour de San Juan. When Ivan Basso told me about the project I gave him an immediate yes. The EOLO-KOMETA is a very motivating proposal and I arrive at a very good time and age to make a definitive jump in my career. I’m a fairly complete runner, with good speed and able to pass the climb, but I’m also a team rider, always ready to work for the team”, he explains.
Davide Bais (1998) makes the jump from Team Friuli after a very interesting performance in the last Giro d’Italia U23. In his case, the rider from Nogaredo signs for the next two seasons.
“I am really very happy for this opportunity from the very moment Ivan Basso contacted my representative. It is a project that I like very much. I have been able to know the team well this season, competing against them. From the outside it is a very well organized structure, very strong, with a good atmosphere. I arrive with a lot of illusion, my great objective is to learn a lot, to grow sportily and of course to help the team. My dream? To participate in the Giro d’Italia”.
