Andrea Piccolo is one of the most exciting prospects of his generation. He has been turning heads with his daring, attacking style for a few years. Ever since his third place finish at the world junior time trial in 2018, when he was just 17, the young Italian rider has earned strong results both in time trials and road races at all levels.
In 2019, he won the junior individual time trials at both the European continental championships and the Italian national championships, before finishing in the top three in both road races as well. Over the next two years, he accumulated more top results in stages races, one day races, and international events.
In August of 2022, he signed with EF Education-EasyPost and immediately made his impact felt with a series of top ten results in international races. He finished the season on the second step of the podium at the Japan Cup, after helping his teammate Neilson Powless to victory. We can't wait to see what the future has in store for him.
In 2023, Andrea made his grand tour debut at the Vuelta a España. The raced opened with the team placing third in the team time trial and on stage two, Andrea raced in the breakaway for over 160 kilometers, which earned him the race leader's red jersey for stage three.
