Dominic Klemme, also shown as Domenek Klemme, (born 31 October 1986) is a German professional road bicycle racer for UCI Professional Continental Team IAM Cycling.[1]

Klemme as a neo-pro, has already shown his aggressive style by taking part in as many breakaways as he possibly can taking on the legacy of his fellow countryman, Jens Voigt.[2][dead link]

Career[edit]

On 3 April 2010, at the Hel van het Mergelland, Klemme won the sprint from the first chase group of 15 with Yann Huguet's Skil-Shimano teammate Simon Geschke holding on to take 4th; Koos Moerenhout of Rabobank filled out the top five.[3] Klemme finished third at 2010 Hel van het Mergelland.[4]

On 27 June 2010, at the German Championships, Tony Martin, the new time trial champion, outsprinted Klemme for fourth place. Klemme tried hard to bridge the gap, but started to have cramps and needed to ease off. Christian Knees was able to move up to the front in this lap, which turned out to be crucial. Three more riders, Markus Fothen, Klemme and Christoph Pfingsten, moved up as well to make it nine on the front. After 150 km, the gap was almost two minutes to the main field. With a little more than 20 km to go, Schillinger and Knees attacked the group, with Radochla also tagging on. Fothen tried in vain to bridge, leaving the three front runners to decide who would get which medal.[5]

Klemme left Argos-Shimano at the end of the 2012 season, and joined the new IAM Cycling team for the 2013 season.[1]
