Oscar Gatto (born 1 January 1985) is an Italian former professional racing cyclist, who rode professionally between 2007 and 2020, for seven different teams.[4] His nickname is 'Oscar the Cat' because his surname (Gatto) is the Italian word for "cat", and his first name is Oscar.


Born in Montebelluna, Gatto left Vini Fantini–Selle Italia at the end of the 2013 season, and joined Cannondale for the 2014 season.[5] In 2015, he rode for Androni Giocattoli.[6] In October 2015 it was announced that Gatto would join Tinkoff for the 2016 season, with the team's directeur sportif Steven de Jongh describing his main role as providing support for Peter Sagan in the classics.[1] He was named in the start list for the 2016 Tour de France.[7]
