“As a professional cyclist, I obviously travel a lot. Seeing so many different cultures has expanded my horizon.”
Matti Breschel is embarking on his 15th season as a professional cyclist. With 21 professional victories, eight grand tours and 30+ classics starts to his name, the Dane is officially regarded as one of the sport’s elder statesmen.
A fan and staff favorite who isn’t afraid to belt out a few old rock-n-rolls songs on the bus, Matti has long been a steady hand in the spring’s northern classics and has grown into a reliable road captain.
Matti has twice ridden for the team. His first stint in argyle came in 2016. He left for one season but returned at the start of 2018.
Fun facts: Matti spent his late teens as a professional model in New York City, Milano and Berlin. He plays guitar and write his own songs.
