CareerEdit

Born in Forlì, Malaguti competed as a professional from 2011, when he joined the Ora Hotels–Carrera team.[2] He spent one season with the team, winning a stage of the Vuelta del Uruguay, before he joined Miche–Guerciotti for the 2012 season. Again, he left the team after one season, and joined Androni Giocattoli–Venezuela for the 2013 season.[3] Malaguti took the first European victory of his professional career in March 2013, when he won the 1.1-rated Route Adélie race, the fourth round of the French Road Cycling Cup. Malaguti was the fastest finisher out of a group of sixteen riders who battled for victory in a sprint finish,[4] in Vitré.

For the 2014 season, Malaguti joined Vini Fantini–Nippo.[1]
