Trek have extended the contract with one their most exciting talents as Giacomo Nizzolo has put pen to paper to sign a deal that will see him be part of the team until the end of the 2016 season. The Italian hopes to continue his rise through the sprinting ranks over the coming years.


25-year-old Giacomo Nizzolo has extended his contract with the team through the end of 2016. The Italian rider, who sprinted no less than four times to second place in this year’s Giro d’Italia, has been a professional since 2011 and has shown solid progression every year. 

“I’m really happy with this contract extension," he said. "There’s a lot of trust between the team and myself and it’s logical that I stay with this group of people. When I broke my collarbone in February, the team has been very supportive. The Giro was a great ride for both parties, although I would probably trade my four second places for one victory, but that’s life.”

“Now we look ahead. I’m taking steps every season and I feel there’s still a lot of margin for me,” says Nizzolo. “I’d like to grow more and rival the big sprinters more. With some dedicated riders on my side it should be possible.”

“I strongly believe that Giacomo is on the verge of a career breakthrough," General Manager Luca Guercilena said. "His numbers in terms of speed and endurance are really good and he’s really in the wheel of the big sprinters.

“I’m very happy that we found an agreement in such good terms. Giacomo’s success is the fruit of our development program and we are looking forward to continuing to work with him. He’s one of the most constant sprinters in the bunch and he can challenge for the win with or without a sprint train.”

“Growing talent is one of the most exciting projects in our sport,” says Guercilena. “I remember very well the Giacomo that arrived at the first training camp for the 2011 season. He was somewhat shy and didn’t speak so much English. Now he is a confident young man that has clear goals in his mind. We’re happy that we can work on those together.”

Nizzolo’s first win was a stage in the 2011 Bayern Rundfahrt, aged 22. He then went on to win stages in the Eneco Tour, the Tour de Wallonie (including overall), the Tour du Poitou Charentes, the Tour of Luxembourg and the Tour de San Luis.
