CareerEdit

Felline was born in Turin. In 2010, Felline took the start of his first Tour de France for Footon–Servetto–Fuji. He was the youngest competitor in that year's Tour.[5] In 2012, Felline won a semi-classic in Italy, the Giro dell'Appennino. He got the best of the sprint of a group of 20 riders who survived several climbs disseminated on the parcours.[6]

After two seasons with Androni Giocattoli–Venezuela, Felline left the team at the end of the 2013 season, to join Trek Factory Racing.[1] At the end of March 2015, Felline won his first race with his new team, a short individual time trial at the Critérium International.[7] In April, he won the second stage of the Tour of the Basque Country in a mass sprint ahead of Michael Matthews after a hilly day.[8]
