KANSTANTSIN SIUTSOU

CLIMBER

The Belarusian Kanstantsin Siutsou is one of the most experienced riders in the peloton. In 2004 he won the Under-23 road world champion in Verona, after having already won several national titles on the road and in time trial. In 2008, he took his first stage race overall victory at the Tour de Georgia, and came 16th overall in the Tour de France.

In the 2009 Giro d’Italia, he won two grand tour stages: the team time trial on stage one and a successful solo breakaway on stages eight. In 2012, he moved to British team Sky and the following year, in addition to winning a stage of the Giro del Trentino, conquered the Time Trial bronze medal in the World Championship in Florence in Italy. In 2015 he moved to the South African Team Dimension Data and, in the last season, he was the national road race and time trial champion and was 10th Overall Giro d'Italia. With his 35 years, Kanstantsin is the mentor to the team's younger riders, but also he has the role of super-domestique in the Grand Tours.

Unfortunately in his debut season with Team BAHRAIN MERIDA he crashed heavily at the Tour de Slovenie, fracturing his left femoral bone and he was forced to miss the Tour de France and the rest of the scheduled races in 2017.
