TEAM KATUSHA ALPECIN

Katusha-Alpecin has announced the signing of young Italian talent Matteo Fabbro, who makes the move from Friuli Cycling Team.

The 22-year-old attracted the team's attention by winning the prologue in this year's Tour de la Vallee d'Aoste after returning from two nasty injuries, in addition to earning podium spots at the Trophee Tempestini Ledo and the Giro del Belvedere.

"This is so incredible," Fabbro said. "I am really happy to make the step to this ambitious WorldTour team. A dream comes true. Now already I want to thank team manager José Azevedo for the faith he has in me. I will do everything not to disappoint him.

"He explained to me the team philosophy and I think I will feel at home in Team Katusha-Alpecin. Most likely I will be the only Italian in the team but that’s no problem for me. I like the international environment. I look forward to showing what I am capable of."

Azevedo believes that if handled well, Fabbro has what it takes to become a solid part of the team in the future.

"I am happy to have Matteo with us in 2018 and 2019. He is a very talented climber. We followed him the last two seasons and now the time is right. Matteo is a guy to cherish. We will give him the necessary time to grow. He is still young and we have patience. I am convinced Matteo Fabbro has a nice cycling future with our team," the Portuguese manager affirmed.
