Biography[edit]

Born on 29 October 1993, in Poggibonsi, Tuscany, Bettiol resides in Castelfiorentino, Tuscany, Italy.[2][6]

Bettiol signed with Cannondale, a UCI ProTeam, for the 2014 season.[7][8]

He signed with Cannondale–Garmin, a UCI ProTeam, for the 2015 season.[9][10]

He was named in the start list for the 2016 Giro d'Italia.[11] In June 2017, he was named in the startlist for the 2017 Tour de France.[12]

2019[edit]

After spending the 2018 season in BMC Racing Team, he returned to his previous team (now called EF Education First Pro Cycling).[13]

After a strong performance at the Tirreno–Adriatico, most notably finishing 3rd on the second stage and 2nd on the final stage (an individual time trial), he won his first professional race at the Tour of Flanders, one of cycling's five monuments. Following a successful solo attack on the second to last climb of the race, Oude Kwaremont, he managed to keep the gap to the chasing group which included several of the pre-race favorites, including previous winners Alexander Kristoff and Peter Sagan, for the remaining 17 km.[14]
