Class and determination at the service of his captains: these qualities make Matteo a rare and precious resource in cycling.
A keen sense for breakaways has helped him win three World Tour victories in his career, allowing him to stay in the lead for many kilometres in the most important one day Classics like the Milano-Sanremo and the Lieges-Bastogne-Lieges.
Bono loves the countryside.
He lives in the charming Franciacorta area in Italy, where he helps his older brother, who is an ex-pro rider, manage a winery.
