From what I've heard he's a strong allrounder who's good on all kinds of different terrains.Samamba said:Carboni seems like a decent climber who can perform well in a TT. In the Peace Race & in the Ronde de l'Isard he got beaten by some younger guys though (Gaudu & Lambrecht). Let's see what he can do in the Giro Valle d'Aosta.Mayomaniac said:Giovanni Carboni seems to be an interesting prospect, 20 years old (born in 1995) and riding for Unieuro Wilier.
This year he finished 7th in the Course de la Paix U23, 6th in Ronde de l'Isard, 6th in the Tour d'Azerbaïdjan ahead of well seasoned pros like Bruno Pires and Jan Barta and 13th in the Tour of Turkey.
He also seems be decent in hilly TTs, last year he finished 2nd in the U23 NC 7 seconds behind Martinelli and 10th in the Road European Championships U23 - ITT (he was only the 3rd best Italian rider, the even younger Edoardo Affini, born in 1996, finished 5th, 19 seconds behind the winner Steven Lammertink and only 1 second behind a world class prospect like Ryan Mullen).
