Francesco Ginanni

Francesco Ginanni (born 6 October 1985 in Pistoia) is an Italian professional road bicycle racer for UCI Professional Continental team Acqua & Sapone, after turning professional with Diquigiovanni–Androni in 2008. As an amateur, Ginanni won five races in 2006 and four races in 2007, including the Giro del Casentino, a 1.2 rated single-day race on the UCI Europe Tour. Ginanni's first professional victory came in the Gran Premio Industria e Commercio Artigianato Carnaghese in August 2008, which he followed up by winning the Tre Valli Varesine and Giro del Veneto, both races classified as 1.HC – the highest rating for single-day races on the UCI Europe Tour. The Daily Peloton called 2008 "a real breakthrough year" for Ginanni.[1] Ginanni won a further three single-day races in 2009 and, as of March 2010, one in 2010. Ginanni won the Trofeo Laigueglia in both 2009 and 2010, emulating Eddy Merckx and Filippo Pozzato.[2] Ginanni is aiming to win Milan–San Remo, one of the five monuments of road bicycle racing. In the 2010 edition, he finished 7th.
