Arnaud Démare (born 26 August 1991) is a professional road racing cyclist who currently rides for UCI ProTeam FDJ.fr.[1] In 2011 he won the UCI Road World Championships under 23 race.[2] In August 2012, Demare won the first World Tour race of his career by prevailing in the Vattenfall Cyclassics, ahead of local favorite Andre Greipel and Giacomo Nizzolo.[3] Démare clearly dominated the mass sprint contested in scorching heat at the end of the 245.6 km (152.6 mi) race.[4] In 2013, Démare won 3 stages in a row at the Four Days of Dunkirk and the general classification.[5] On the third stage, his team-mate and lead-out rider Geoffrey Soupe produced a final power surge to launch Démare, and the duo finished one-two in the mass sprint, with Ramon Sinkeldam of Argos-Shimano taking third place.[6]
