Italian junior champion Belletta to Jumbo-Visma Development Team

Dario Igor Belletta will be part of the development team of Team Jumbo-Visma from next season. The reigning Italian junior champion signs a contract with Jumbo-Visma Development Team for two seasons.

In addition to road cycling, Belletta is also a track cyclist. As a junior, the Italian won several Italian and world titles on the track. Belletta is currently racing for GB Team-Pool Cantù.

“I’m really looking forward to this challenge”, 18-year-old Belletta said. “Team Jumbo-Visma is currently one of the best cycling teams in the world and I think the Development Team is also one of the best in the world. There is a lot of knowledge within this team. In addition, I can ride a nice and challenging race program, which will help me develop. In the coming years, I want to gain experience and develop myself. Hopefully, I will move on to the pros after that.”

"His track background also plays an important role because, in scouting, we look beyond just the results achieved on the road."

Head of Development Robbert de Groot is happy to add a promising rider to the Jumbo-Visma Development Team’s talent group. “Dario is a rider who has shown himself on many different terrains, especially in Italian races with selective courses. His track background also plays an important role because, in scouting, we look beyond just the results achieved on the road. Dario’s versatility makes him an interesting rider to work with in the coming years.”
