Alessio Taliani is about to start an important season. As he heads into his third year as a pro, the Androni – Sidermec rider has made ​​significant strides in 2015, showing important qualities as a climber and I now expected to confirm his potential. The Italian has the confidence from his Androni manager Gianni Savio.


"I will try to start wel, but not with a great form,” he said in an interview with SpazioCiclismo. “The races early in the season are not very suitable for me. I will start gradually from February, trying to improve the condition. This year which is my third, I would like to do the Giro if we get the invitation”

The Giro is an important step for Taliani who wants to take advantage of the summer season which suits his characteristics. "My dream is to get a win in a Grand Tour,” he continued. “It is not easy, the competition is fierce, but every year I show more and more effort and passion. The desire grows and even if I am getting older, I think I'm still young. I still have to prove my qualities and I have room for improvement.”

After the difficult move to the professional world, the Tuscan confirmed his potential in 2015. “The whole season has been positive,” he said. “When I had my best condition in June and July, I went really well, during the Italian Championships, Sibiu Tour and Trofeo Matteotti. Unfortunately, we then had to stop for almost two months between July and September [Androni were suspended for a month due to two soping cases], and the condition was not excellent. Overall the results are positive, I started to show my qualities and I hope to improve.”

Two important points of reference for Taliani will be the environment at Androni and teammate Franco Pellizotti. Taliani regards the former Italian "is a landmark and an example" since he “always points to the maximum and makes many sacrifices” which is not possible for everybody. This enables him to transmit "the passion for cycling not only as a job, but also as fun." The other aspect is the team with its "nice and welcoming atmosphere” which needs to be “100% professional" but at the same time does not put "enormous pressure" on the riders. In this way young people can build a solid foundation for the future, hoping to get the first important results. That’s the case for Taliani who has already laid the foundations but dreams of taking that extra step to join the big names in Italian cycling.
