Rubiera won his first professional race at the 1997 Giro d'Italia, winning stage 19. His climbing ability was instrumental in leading Lance Armstrong to five of his Tour de France victories, most famously leading Armstrong up the start of Alpe d'Huez in 2001. He earned an engineering degree in 2004, while balancing his race schedule and studies. He is very respected in the peloton and was elected as deputy to the cyclists' representative council of the UCI ProTour.
