Gabriele Raccagni

U23

A native of Brescia, Gabriele came to cycling also influenced by the hobby of a close relative. One of his grandfathers rode regularly, but he never aspired to become a professional cyclist. It was a recreational and regular cycling. The young Raccagni (5 February 2003) was always attracted by the world of bicycles and finally joined a cycling academy at the age of eight. “I liked bicycles. I used to see my grandfathers Francesco and Bruno out riding and it caught my attention. All of us at home have grown up with those references”, says the youngster from Collebeato. Raccagni made the leap from the U19 to the U23 category in 2021 with the Fundación Contado, but as a youth rider with Feralpi Monteclarense, under the orders of Tiziano Gozio, he had already shown himself to be a cyclist with a good tactical sense of smell and a good top speed, always with great regularity and displaying great consistency throughout the course. “I consider myself a ‘passista’ with a good top speed, a ‘passista veloce’. The flat is always good, but I can also adapt to a mixed race. I am able to pass the climbs that are not very, very hard and I think this is something I can improve a lot from now on”, he says. He has displayed these skills throughout 2023 on the Spanish and Italian calendar, where he has become an unmistakable cyclist with his style on the bike and the sensational work he always does for his teammates. Raccagni has three sisters (Veronica, Chiara, Marta) and he is third in the family order. “I love cycling. I also like to follow Calcio, I’m a Bescia fan. And I like motor sports, like Formula 1. Ferrari always pleases me. And when it comes to video games and so on, I’m not particularly a gamer, although from time to time we do organise something online with friends. And what about the future? “The main thing is to make it to the top level. To become a professional. And after that, it wouldn’t be bad to fight to win a great classic, a monument. Between Milano-Sanremo and Giro di Lombardia? I would choose Sanremo, I think it would be the best for my conditions”.
