Matteo Trentin (born 2 August 1989) is an Italian professional road cyclist, who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam Mitchelton–Scott.[2]


Professional career

In 2014, Trentin took a prestigious victory on Stage 7 of the Tour de France, where he won the sprint by a few centimeters over Peter Sagan.[3] Trentin had also won a stage of the same race on his maiden Tour start in 2013, winning in a sprint in Lyon against his breakaway counterparts. In October 2015, Trentin won Paris–Tours in record time for a race over 200 km, thus becoming the new Ruban Jaune. By winning the fourth stage in the 2017 Vuelta a España, he completed the set of at least one stage win in each of the Grand Tours. He won three more stages and he was also in contention for the points jersey. But as Chris Froome was also sprinting unexpectedly, by managing to collect 5 points he was able to keep his leading position in the points competition too, and took the overall win from Trentin by only 2 points.

Trentin became European Champion by winning the road race at the 2018 European Cycling Championships in Glasgow.
