Dylan Teuns (born 1 March 1992) is a Belgian professional road racing cyclist, who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam Team Bahrain Victorious.[5]

Career[edit]

Born in Diest in Flemish Brabant, Teuns is based in Halen in Limburg.[1]

He originally joined BMC Racing Team as a stagiaire[1] in 2014 before being announced as part of the team's line-up for the 2015 season.[6] He was named in the start list for the 2016 Vuelta a España[7] and the start list for the 2017 Giro d'Italia.[8]

In July 2017, Teuns won the Tour de Wallonie, also winning two stages and the points classification alongside his overall success.[9] Teuns then took overall victory in the Tour de Pologne. The following month, he won the Arctic Race of Norway, again winning two individual stages and the points classification.

After four years with the BMC Racing Team, Teuns joined the Bahrain–Merida team for the 2019 season.[3] In July 2019, he was named in the startlist for the 2019 Tour de France.[10] Teuns won stage 6 of the race, outsprinting fellow breakaway rider Giulio Ciccone at the summit finish on La Planche des Belles Filles.[11]

During the 2021 Tour de France Teuns won one of the most memorable stages in recent Tour history.[12] Stage 8 was the stage where eventual champ Tadej Pogačar blew apart the field and was in pursuit of the stage win to go with the yellow jersey. Teuns had been out in the breakaway earlier in the stage and had attacked on his own in an attempt to solo to victory. Pogačar finished with the surviving breakaway riders Ion Izagirre and Michael Woods, approximately +0:45 behind Teuns who held on to win the stage.
