Cancellara was born in Wohlen bei Bern, a municipality near the city of Berne, Switzerland to Italian parents that had emigrated from San Fele. He discovered cycling at the age of 13 after falling in love with an old family bike that he had found in the garage and immediately gave up football to concentrate on cycling.
