After retiring from racing earlier this year when he was unable to find a new contract, Matteo Tosatto has signed-on with Team Sky as a sport director. The Italian had a 20-year pro career and said he was hoping to race for another year but was forced to retire when he was unable to secure a new contract for this season.
“My first impressions of the team are that it’s a really incredible group and the detail and organisation is very impressive,” he said. “To be able to work for the best team in the world is a great feeling. Naturally I’m very excited to go to my first race as a Sport Director and this is the best opportunity for me after my career as a pro cyclist.
Tosatto has been slowly integrating into his new role.
