Alessandro De Marchi (born 19 May 1986) is an Italian professional road and track bicycle racer who rides for UCI ProTeam BMC Racing Team.


Born in San Daniele del Friuli, De Marchi has competed as a professional since the start of the 2011 season, joining the Androni Giocattoli squad after a stagiaire spell with the team at the end of the 2010 season.[1]

In the 2012 Giro d'Italia, De Marchi twice featured in a breakaway, during the fifth and fourteenth stages. In the latter stage, De Marchi made it to the end of the stage with the breakaway and finished third,behind Andrey Amador and Jan Bárta; the result came on his 26th birthday.[2]

In the 2014 Tour de France, De Marchi was twice declared the 'most combative' rider of a stage, and earned the Tour's overall combativity award.[3] De Marchi claimed his first Grand Tour Stage win on Stage 7 of the 2014 Vuelta a España via an early breakaway and he finished solo.[4]

The BMC Racing Team announced that De Marchi would be joining them for the 2015 season.[5]
