Italian rider Domenico Pozzovivo reinforces Intermaché – Wanty – Gobert Matériaux and will wear the colors of the Belgian World Team in 2022. The climber from Basilicata starts his eighteenth season as a professional rider, during which he finished seven times in the top ten of a Grand Tour. He ended the Giro d’Italia twice in fifth place in fifteen participations and took a stage victory in 2012.
The former winner of the Tour of Trentin made an incredible comeback in the peloton in 2020, several months after a training accident in which he sustained multiple fractures. As a teammate of Louis Meintjes within Qhubeka NextHash, he finished eleventh in the Tour of Italy and sixth in the Tour of Switzerland.
