Diego Ulissi (born 15 July 1989) is an Italian road bicycle racer, who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam UAE Team Emirates.[1]

Career[edit]

Born in Cecina, Ulissi won the Junior World Road Race Championships in 2006 and 2007. He is the second cyclist ever – after Giuseppe Palumbo – to achieve two consecutive World Junior Road titles. He was awarded stage 17 of the 2011 Giro d'Italia after Giovanni Visconti was relegated for improper sprinting.[2]

In June 2011 he won one stage,[3] and the overall classification at the Tour of Slovenia.[4]

In June 2014 it was announced that Ulissi had failed a drug test during that year's Giro d'Italia, during which he won two stages. He tested positive for the asthma drug salbutamol, which is found in Ventolin. Ulissi had permission to use Ventolin, however the test indicated that he had almost twice the permitted concentration of salbutamol in his urine.[5] He received a nine-month suspension ending in March 2015.[6] After this hiatus, Ulissi came back to win Stage 7 of the Giro d'Italia in Fiuggi.[7]

In June 2017, he was named in the startlist for the Tour de France.[8]
