Italian climber Simone Petilli, one of the most loyal elements of team Intermarché-Circus-Wanty, extends the adventure with the structure of Jean-François Bourlart for two additional seasons until the end of 2025.
Petilli, who has seven years of experience in the World Tour, regularly played a crucial role in the success of his teammates since his arrival within Intermarché-Circus-Wanty in 2020, both in stage races and one day classics.
The 30 year old Lombard also seized opportunities to achieve personal results on home soil, such as his top ten results in the difficult classic Strade Bianchi (9th in 2022), the Giro di Sicilia (8th in 2023) or in mountain stages in the Giro of 2021 and 2023.
This season, Petilli converted a breakaway of 211 kilometer through the vineyards of Vini Fantini into a first podium in a Grand Tour, by taking third place on top of Gran Sasso. Petilli is currently racing his seventh Grand Tour in La Vuelta, the fourth one with the Belgian team.
