Ivan Santaromita (born 30 April 1984) is an Italian professional road bicycle racer for UCI ProTeam Orica-GreenEDGE.[1]

Career[edit]

Born in Varese, Santaromita turned professional with Quick Step-Innergetic in 2006 before moving to Liquigas in 2008. In 2010, he took his first significant victory as a professional in the Settimana Internazionale Coppi e Bartali, dominating the stage race as he won it with more than a minute-and-a-half of an advantage over Przemysław Niemiec.[2]

In 2013,[3] Santaromita won the third stage of the Giro del Trentino. He approached the finish line with Michele Scarponi and Paolo Tiralongo, the trio being the remnants of an early breakaway. Santaromita outsprinted the pair to claim his first victory since 2010.[4] Santaromita left the BMC Racing Team at the end of the 2013 season, and joined Orica-GreenEDGE for the 2014 season.[1]

In 2014, Santaromita was the first rider to withdraw from the Vuelta a Espana on stage 7 after breaking a finger in a crash.[5]
