Moreno Moser started 2013 off with a bang. In only his second race of the year, the Strade Bianche, he soloed to a dramatic victory by attacking final climb and distancing himself from the break. His form hot, he remained in the mix for much of the spring.
He took a break, reloaded for the Tour de France. There, he supported Peter Sagan, an expected apprenticeship for the young Trentin. With the form gained at the Tour, he rode with the leaders at Classica San Sebastian, and finished seventh.
Moreno carries a depth of experience that few can match. Moser, only 23, is from a storied cycling family. His uncles, his father, his brothers, and a cousin have all ridden as professionals. He came to the team late in the 2011 season as a stagiaire, a French term for a professional tryout. He impressed, and signed a two-year contact. In his first full year, he opened with season with a victory at the Trofeo Laigueglia. He knows how to train in the off-season, and typically starts the year flying.
Moreno’s 2013 was better than his 2012. For 2014, he’s earned himself more chances at leading the team and having a free hand to ride for himself. Expect to see more of him at the front this year, particularly in hilly races where constant aggression is rewarded by making the final selection.
