Enrico Battaglin (born 17 November 1989) is a professional cyclist born in Marostica, Italy.

He was signed by Colnago at the age of 17 because they felt he had a lot of potential, but spent 4 years in the youth ranks before graduating to the main team.[1] He made a major impact immediately after joining the professional ranks, winning the Coppa Sabatini.[2] In 2013. Battaglin won the fourth stage of the Giro d'Italia, a 246 km (152.9 mi) affair concluding with two climbs. He won the sprint of the head group before fellow Italians Fabio Felline and Giovanni Visconti.[3]
