Cervélo TestTeam is pleased to announce the signing of Marcello Albasini of Switzerland as a Sports Director of the team.

Marcello Albasini is a seasoned cycling coach who has developed many pro riders over the years, notably Olympic Champion Fabian Cancellara, who won the Junior World Champion title under Albasini’s watchful eye.

“We are pleased to welcome Marcello Albasini to our team,” said Thomas Campana, Managing Director, Cervélo TestTeam. Marcello has been instrumental in formulating, training and encouraging the careers of many young Swiss athletes and we are most fortunate to have him working with our new riders. He has a stellar reputation as a coach with the Swiss Olympic team, the Junior National Team of the Swiss National Cycling Federation, and the Swiss U23 National Team with whom he has worked since 1999. His expertise and talents will work well with those of Jean-Paul van Poppel and Jens Zemke as the team’s three sports directors.”

“This is a dream come true,” said Albasini upon signing his contract. “I’m really happy to have the opportunity to develop myself and to work next year together with the Cervélo TestTeam riders.”

The fifty-one year-old coach is also the father of cyclist Michael Albasini.
