Tom-Jelte Slagter (born 1 July 1989) is a Dutch professional road racing cyclist who rides for UCI ProTeam Garmin-Sharp.[1][2] Born in Groningen, Groningen, Netherlands, Slagter resides in Leeuwarden, Flevoland, Netherlands.[2]

Career[edit]

While riding for Blanco Pro Cycling in 2013,[3] Slagter won the Tour Down Under, his greatest career achievement. Slagter won the third stage after attacking on the finial climb, cresting it alone. He was joined by three riders on the descent, and with the peloton on their heels, Slagter out-sprinted the group.[4] He gained the orange jersey on the fifth stage, finishing atop Old Willunga Hill in second position, behind Australian Simon Gerrans (Orica-GreenEDGE), the defending champion.[5] On the finial stage, Slagter successfully defended his lead, with Spaniard Javier Moreno (Movistar Team) earning second place, seventeen seconds in arrears.[6]

Slagter signed with the Garmin-Sharp squad for the 2014 season, having signed a two-year contract.[1][7][8]
