Davide Villella

A MUCH-NEEDED ASSET. Nine Grand Tours -fives Giros, four Vueltas- have been raced by Italy’s Davide Villella at the age of just 28. He’s a renowned domestique, whose best potential is always seen at one and three-week stageraces. An ever-dependable rider in the mountains, he comes into the Movistar Team to become an important part of the core of the squad, very much used to shine in the toughest races of the WorldTour.

A GOOD STEPPING STONE. Villella isn’t, however, just a rider focused on team duties. And the final part of his 2019 season is a proof of his real potential. He finished 2nd in the CRO Race, just behind Adam Yates; 7th at the Gran Piemonte, won by Tour de France victor Egan Bernal; and took a top-ten overall finish in the Tour of Guangxi, against the best WorldTour squads. Those are some fine details of quality from a rider who will surely enjoy many chances to do well with the Movistar Team in 2020.

VICTORIES AROUND THE WORLD. The winner of the KOM classification in the 2017 Vuelta a España has claimed his professional victories always outside of Italy. The 2016 Japan Cup Road Race and the overall classification, plus one stage, of the 2018 Tour of Almaty are the best results by Villella, who has raced in five continents since his debut in 2014, always with WT outfits.
