CareerEdit

Born in Marostica, Italy, Battaglin was signed by Colnago at the age of 17 because they felt he had a lot of potential, but spent 4 years in the youth ranks before graduating to the main team.[5] He made a major impact immediately after joining the professional ranks, winning the Coppa Sabatini as a stagiaire in 2011.[6]

In 2013 Battaglin won the fourth stage of the Giro d'Italia, a 246 km (152.9 mi) affair concluding with two climbs. He won the sprint of the main group ahead of fellow Italians Fabio Felline and Giovanni Visconti.[7] He was named in the startlist for the 2016 Vuelta a España.[8]
