Elia Viviani will step into training camp this month with his 2022 team Ineos Grenadiers carrying the confidence of having wins on the board in 2021 and hopes that he’ll step it up yet another level in the season ahead.

The Italian sprinter, who has been racing with Cofidis the last two seasons, has already rebounded from a winless year in 2020, starting with victory at the Cholet-Pays de la Loire in March of 2021 before adding six more to his tally across this season. It was a welcome breaking of the drought, however there wasn’t a top tier victory among them. That is something Viviani wants to change.
