Roberto Ferrari (born 9 March 1983 in Gavardo) is an Italian cyclist who is riding for the UCI World Tour team UAE Team Emirates.[1] He previously rode in 2011 and 2012 for the UCI Professional Continental team Androni Giocattoli–Venezuela.[2]


After stage 3 of the 2012 Giro d'Italia in Horsens, Denmark, Ferrari was relegated from 10th to 192nd position after the race jury ruled that he was responsible for a crash that brought down world champion Mark Cavendish and race leader Taylor Phinney since he swerved from the left to the right side of the road in the final meters.[3] He stated after that mishap that "I don't care what is going on behind me". He gained extensive disapproval with this statement, from within the professional peloton and from the public.[4] Ferrari later won stage 11 – the longest stage of the race – in a sprint finish in Montecatini Terme.[5]
