Gianni Moscon "is determined to make a new start" according to Soudal - Quick-Step Sports Director

In 2024, Gianni Moscon will depart Astana Qazaqstan Team for Soudal - Quick-Step after two years with the Kazakh-based team. Although Moscon is a somewhat controversial character, sports director Davide Brambati is confident he can get the best out of him.

"I looked him in the eye and he is determined to make a new start," the Italian sports director told Bici. "I'm glad he's here because ever since he was very young I've said he has a great future. We have to see him in action in training, we have to talk to him. Then we determine his calendar."

Widely regarded as a top prospect during his time at Team Sky, it's fair to say that Moscon hasn't developed into the rider many had hoped he would become. Could this new team and new environment finally get consistently good results out of the now 29-year-old?

"I think it's basically about instilling confidence and motivation in riders. I have always been committed to that," Brambati says of his plans for Moscon. "If things aren't going well with riders, we have to talk and support them as a team. If the rider has the motivation and the team is behind him, then that can be important for performance. We have always done that, and we sent a signal to riders, even when things weren't going so well."
