Alberto Bettiol is going back to EF Education First-Drapac. The Italian returns to the American team after being one year in BMC Racing Team.

Bettiol turned professional with Cannondale in 2014 and stayed in the team until 2017 when he signed a contract with BMC. "I’m ready to pull on argyle again because it’s important to me to finish what I started last year and never quite completed," said the rider. "The argyle family believed in me since the very beginning, and I feel that it’s my best choice to return to where it all began.

"I know nearly everyone on the team already, and I’m happy to get to know the new guys. In many ways, I feel like I never really left, so it won’t feel strange at all to come back."

Team's CEO Jonathan Vaughters is glad to have Bettiol back in the formation. "Alberto showed great promise when he was with us," he commented. "He was climbing near the best at the 2017 Tour de France and was a key part of our classics team. He got a bit derailed in 2018, we are going to get him back on track.

"Alberto and his family were really a part of our family. I understood when he left in the precarious situation we were in last year, but now that we’re out of that, I’m really excited to have him back."
