Early yearsEdit

As a junior, Moschetti raced on the road and track, winning the junior national team pursuit championships in 2014 with teammates Giovanni Pedretti, Imerio Cima and Giacomo Garavaglia. In 2017, Moschetti won his second national championship when he won the under-23 race at the Italian National Road Race Championships. At the end of the season, Moschetti rode as a stagiaire for Trek–Segafredo.

Polartec–Kometa (2018)Edit

Moschetti joined UCI Continental team Polartec–Kometa for the 2018 season, and brought the team their first victory when he won stage 1 of the Tour of Antalya. His success continued, winning stage 4 of the same race, the International Rhodes Grand Prix a week later, and stage 2 of the International Tour of Rhodes. During the Tour de Normandie, a French stage race, Moschetti won stages 4 and 7, ultimately finishing second overall in the points classification.[4] After his success in the Tour de Normandie, Moschetti signed a 2-year contract with UCI WorldTeam Trek–Segafredo, for the 2019 and 2020 season.[5] As he did in 2017, Moschetti rode as a stagiaire with Trek–Segafredo at the end of the 2018 season.
