Early life and careerEdit
Team Sky (2016–present)Edit
In September 2015, it was announced that he had signed a professional contract with Team Sky for the 2016 season. This followed a recommendation from Fausto Pinarello, of the company who manufacture the team's bicycles, who had seen Moscon winning amateur races and spoke about him to Sky sport director Dario Cioni.
Moscon recorded his first professional victory at the Arctic Race of Norway when he won the queen stage. He later went on to win the general classification, as well as the youth classification. He was named in the startlist for the 2017 Vuelta a España. In July 2018, he was named in the start list for the 2018 Tour de France.
Racism and suspensionEdit
During the 2017 Tour de Romandie, Moscon racially abused French cyclist Kevin Reza. He was suspended from racing with Team Sky for six weeks. The team indicated that any further behaviour incidents will result in Moscon's contract being terminated.
Moscon was also accused of purposefully crashing FDJ rider Sébastien Reichenbach during the 2017 Tre Valli Varesine, though the investigation was dropped on the incident due to a lack of evidence, as the crash was not captured on television cameras.
2017 World ChampionshipsEdit
Moscon was disqualified from the 2017 UCI World Championships Road Race after being towed back to the peloton by the Italian team car following a crash on the penultimate lap. Moscon ultimately bridged to a breakaway with French rider Julian Alaphilippe in the final five kilometers of the race before finishing 29th. Following the race, Moscon was disqualified by race commissaires.
2018 Tour de France incidentEdit
Moscon was disqualified from the 2020 Kuurne–Brussels–Kuurne after he was caught on camera throwing a bike at another rider after a massive crash in the peloton. Upon finding out he was disqualified, he proceeded to remove his race numbers on camera for which he was fined CHF 500. Rider Jens Debusschere, at whom Moscon had thrown the bike, suffered a cut to his hand and wrist and commented at the finish line: "It’s a series of incidents and it's always the same guy. [...] It’s not only this incident, there’s many more incidents. If you ask around in the peloton about how their relation is with him, then ninety per cent will react negatively."
