As a child, he started cycling at the age of 8 and very soon he was winning in various categories for young people.

In 2006, in the Juniors category, in parallel with road races, he began track cycling. Medals are now accumulating in both disciplines.

In 2008, in the under 23 category, he signed in the Marchiol Emisfero Liquigas team and continued to race in both disciplines even though, during the years 2008 - 2010, he accumulated mostly gold medals in track cycling (scratch, American, pursuit).

His career path

In 2010, after winning several races as an amateur, Elia Viviani turned professional with the Italian Liquigas-Doimo team. In his very first professional cycling race, he won a stage sprint at the Tour of Turkey.

In 2011, he won his first World Tour race at the Tour of Beijing with the Liquigas-Cannondale team.

In 2015, the Italian sprinter made the move to the Sky team. That year, he won his first stage in a grand tour with his victory in the second stage of the Giro d'Italia. That year, in addition to his numerous road victories, he was also crowned European Omnium Track Champion. The following year, he would win the Olympic title at the Rio Olympics in the same category.

In 2017, Elia Viviani decided to focus solely on his career as a road cyclist. Nevertheless, his team does not select him on any grand tour. He then decided to end his contract with Sky and joined for the 2018 season the Quick-Step Floors team.

With his new team, in 2018, he swept a total of seven stages in the Giro d'Italia and the Tour of Spain, matching Mark Cavendish's record. He also finished the Giro with the cyclamen jersey and would be crowned Champion of Italy on the road in the process. He totals 18 wins over the 2018 season.
During the 2019 season, he wins his first stage in the Tour de France and is crowned European Road Champion.

In 2020, he joined the French team Cofidis, notably replacing Nacer Bouhanni who left for the Arkéa Samsic team.
