Simone Petilli extends the adventure with Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert

The 28 year old climber extended his contract with Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux for one more year, to start his third season with the Belgian team in 2022. The Italian rider distinguished himself in a supporting role when the road went up, but also several times in breakaways. It was in this way that he animated the queen stage in the Tour de Romandie towards Thyon 2000, and finished 18th in the general classification.

Later during the season, he participated in the first Giro and Vuelta in the history of the team. In the Giro he finished 8th in Bagno di Romagna. In August, he contributed to a fantastic collective performance in the Vuelta, which he finished in 29th place.

« It was a big honor to be a part of the team's success in the Giro and the Vuelta! The emotional release after these victories showed the true passion and willingness to work hard of all riders and staff of the team. The fantastic atmosphere and the progress made by the structure motivate me to show the best of myself. The fact that the rest of the peloton takes us into account more and more is a nice compliment for our collective performance. This season, I especially took on a role in support of ur best climbers. For next year I have the ambition to adopt the offensive race style of the team even more and imitate my successful teammates. I can’t wait to take up the challenge for next season, and accomplish a new step forward with Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux! »
