ALESSANDRO BALLAN

ALESSANDRO BALLAN
Bio

Born in Castelfranco Veneto in 1979 and a professional cyclist since 2004, Alessandro Ballan’s name is inextricably linked to his winning of the 2007 Tour of Flanders, the legendary Belgian race which is one of the five “Monuments”, classic races fought over by cyclists from all over the world. The following year Ballan was crowned world champion on the Varese road race track. Difficult years followed, with great results alternating with injuries and accusations of doping, all of which were cleared but which contributed to his decision to leave professional cycling and devote himself to his great passion: bicycles and everything associated with them.
