Ioannis Tamouridis (Greek: Ιωάννης Ταμουρίδης; born 3 June 1980) is a Greek cyclist from Thessaloniki, Greece.[1] He started cycling in 1995 and he competes in Road and Track races.

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Highlights of his earlier career include two medals in world track championships, in Points Races (Los Angeles 2005) and Scratch (Bordeaux 2006). He has won 4 medals in track world cup by 2006 and has more than 30 times become Greek national champion in all disciplines (road, track and mountain bike races) and all categories.[2] He won the bronze medal for the time trial at the XVI Mediterranean Games held in Pescara, Italy .[3]

Tamouridis competed with Greek cycling team Sp Tableware between 2009 and 2012.

Euskaltel-Euskadi (2013)[edit]

He then joined the Euskaltel-Euskadi team for the 2013 season,[4] where he has affectionately become known as 'Tamu' among his team mates.[5]

To date,[6] he is the only Greek cyclist to have raced at the Spring Classics of Milan - San Remo, where he finished 88th out of 200 starters and 135 finishers under treacherous weather conditions,[7] Paris - Roubaix,[8] Tirreno - Adriatico and the Tour of Flanders. He is also the first Greek cyclist to have entered and finished a grand tour, the Giro d'Italia in 2013 where he participated in four bunch sprint finishes, achieving ninth place on the twelfth stage of the race.[9] He also came seventh in the Premio della Fuga classification.[10]

In June 2013 Tamouridis won both the National Men's Elite Road Race and National Men's Elite Time Trial champion titles, dedicating the latter to Rufino Murguía, Euskaltel-Euskadi's team masseur, who was killed when the team's bus was involved in a crash.[11]

Tamouridis rejoined SP Tableware in 2014, after his previous team – Euskaltel-Euskadi – folded at the end of the 2013 season.[12]
