Teams history:


Italian rider Filippo Ganna is the pre-eminent time trialist of his generation, having won the World Championships in the discipline in 2020 and 2021 and also captured the World Hour Record with a distance of 56.792km in October 2022. Ganna turned pro with UAE Team Emirates in 2017, moving to his current team Ineos Grenadiers in 2019.

Born on July 25, 1996 in Verbania, Italy, Ganna has rapidly risen to cycling stardom in recent years, emerging during the 2019 and 2020 seasons as a near-unbeatable force in time trials around Europe. After winning Italian national titles in the race against the clock as a junior (2014) and U23 rider (2016), he has gone on to win the elite title four times (2019, 2020, 2022, 2023). He has also won TTs at the Giro d'Italia, Critérium du Dauphiné, and Tirreno-Adriatico over the years – including a phenomenal display at the COVID-19-delayed 2020 Giro d'Italia which saw him win all three time trials in addition to taking a solo victory on the mid-mountain stage to Camigliatello Silano. In 2023 he won his first time trial at the Vuelta a España.

Ganna also claimed the first GC title of his career at the 2023 Tour de Wallonie, using a time trial victory on stage 4 to seal the five-day stage race win. Possessing a supreme power on the flat, it's no surprise that Ganna has added Paris-Roubaix to his list of career goals. He finished 35th on his race debut in 2022 and followed that in 2023 with sixth.

He has even more achievements indoors on the velodrome, having won nine medals at UCI Track Worlds, to date, including six world titles in the Individual Pursuit. At the Tokyo Olympic Games, he was part of the Italian team which won gold in the Team Pursuit. If that wasn't enough he also holds the world record times in both the individual pursuit and the team pursuit, along with Italy teammates Simone Consonni, Francesco Lamon, and Jonathan Milan.
