Bettiol back to Tour of Flanders best and ready to lead Italy at Worlds

The Italian Squadra isn’t one of the strongest teams for this year’s Men’s World Championship road race, but team leader Alberto Bettiol likes to fly under the radar, confident in his own ability and form after three roller-coaster seasons that tested his resolve but made it have him stronger.

The Tuscan EF Education EasyPost rider won the 2019 Tour of Flanders but has struggled with a series of issues since. However, riding this year’s Tour de France and nearly winning the stage to Mende put him back on track physically and mentally confident for the World Championships.
