Team Polti Kometa is a cycling structure with ProTeam, U-23 and junior teams that is part of the Contador Foundation. A project with more than 10 years of history, promoted by the cyclists Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso together with Fran Contador. Some of the greatest cyclists of today have grown on its ranks, in a structure that has not lost its origins with the steep forward in 2021 into the ProTeam category thanks to the impulse of Eolo and Kometa. Two victories in the Giro d’Italia, a great image as a team and constant growth have allowed the Polti company to join the project in 2024, which aspires to continue to evolve in the world of cycling.
Always with its sights set on development, on a human level, and on training formation, on a sporting level, and with the ambition of continuing to grow on the road to the highest category, the WorldTour, Team Polti Kometa has already competed in three editions of the Giro d’Italia and has won two stage victories in the race thanks to Lorenzo Fortunato and Davide Bais. The climber Fortunato won on Zoncolan in 2021, in a feat that will always be remembered; while Bais won on Campo Imperatore by showing his strength in the final part of the climb.
Guided by Fran Contador, Alberto Contador and Iván Basso, and with the aim of giving back to cycling a part of what cycling has given them, the team has earned on and off the road the respect of opponents, the admiration of fans and the interest of new cyclists and new sponsors, who want to join a project that is both sporting and human.
Through the social projects of the Alberto Contador Foundation, such as Bicis para la Vida by ŠKODA or Idemticos; as well as promoting the youth and under-23 training teams, and the Plaza Éboli cycling schools in Pinto (Madrid), the dimension of Polti Kometa grows every day with great professionals, important objectives and the enthusiasm of a project that loves cycling.
