Italian puncheur Mauro Finetto announces retirement from cycling

According to reports from L'Arena, Mauro Finetto has decided to put an end to his 14-year-long cycling career. The Italian rider has secured a total of 10 victories in his career.

Fourteen years ago, Finetto started his career with CSF Group-Navigare in 2008. Having spent two seasons with the ProContinental team, he joined the WorldTour team Liquigas. But he never returned to the WorldTour team after Liquigas. He currently rides for Maloja Pushbikers, but has not found a contract for 2023.

Finetto was known for being a good hill climber, along with a nice sprinter. The Hel van het Mergelland gave him his first professional victory in 2009. He also won Two stages in the Tour of Turkey, two stages in the Sibiu Cycling Tour, a stage and overall victory in the Tour du Limousin, a stage in the Settimana Coppi e Bartali, GP di Lugano and the Classic Sud Ardèche in his career. Recent years have not been conducive to his ability to perform, which may have led to his retirement.
