Career

Oss was born in Trento. In 2004, Oss' first results on the track and road were outstanding: he excelled in the National Student Track Championships in Pordenone, collecting three podiums in the pursuit; in the same year gained third place in the Madison at the European Student Championships in Fiorenzuola d'Arda.

After a year in the dark, Oss returned to the limelight in 2006 succeeding to finish in five races including Ponton, Isolates Vicentina, Cremona Pessina and Bibano of Godega. In 2007, he won two smaller competitions while in 2008, besides three other competitions, he also participated in the World Championships in Varese, coming home in eighth place in the Under 23 time-trial.

In 2009, Oss turned professional, joining the team Liquigas; [6] he entered the top 10 for the first time in a professional race during the Tour of Catalunya, it was in the prologue, in which he finished ninth place, four seconds detached from the winner Thor Hushovd. During the same year, he participated in the National Track Championships and came first in the Pursuit along with companions Jacopo Guarnieri, Elia Viviani and Davide Cimolai. Towards the end of the season, he was able to finish in the top five of a number of professional races: two fourth places in the Tour of Missouri and fifth in the Gran Premio Industria e Commercio di Prato.

In 2010, Oss came fifth in the Gent-Wevelgem and fourth in one of the stages of Three Days of De Panne. He was also involved in his first ever Grand Tour when he came 124th in the Tour de France, [7] he also won the combativity award on Stage 18, for his involvement in the breakaway. He played a key role as a lead out man for sprinter and teammate Elia Viviani in the inaugural USA Pro Cycling Challenge. It was Oss's leadouts that secured Viviani two stage victories and the Green, Points Championship. On Stage 6 into Denver, Viviani rewarded Oss' hardwork by allowing him to win the sprint finish.

Oss left Liquigas–Cannondale at the end of the 2012 season, and joined the BMC Racing Team for the 2013 season. [2] Oss spent five years with the team before moving to Bora–Hansgrohe for 2018. [8]
