Life and career
Buchmann is the son of carpenter Manfred Buchmann and hails from Vogt near Ravensburg in the German state of Baden-Württemberg. In 2015, Buchmann denied the strong German sprinters their chance at the National Championship road race when he attacked from a leading group to take the title. During the subsequent Tour de France, he finished a strong third on the stage finishing on top the Col du Tourmalet. After a quieter 2016 season, he finished tenth at the 2017 Tour de Romandie, losing a podium position only during the race's final stage time trial. Buchmann then finished seventh overall and first in the young riders' classification at the 2017 Critérium du Dauphiné, one of the major preparation races for the Tour de France. During the last stage, he finished ahead of strong general classification riders such as Chris Froome, Alejandro Valverde and Alberto Contador at Plateau de Solaison. Buchmann commented after the stage that he was delighted to have been able to "stay with the best" of the race. At the National Championships the week after, Buchmann set up the victory for his teammate Marcus Burghardt, finishing in second place. His form faded slightly at the Tour de France, where he was set to work for team leader Rafał Majka, who retired early. He eventually finished in 15th place overall.
