Gino Mäder (born 4 January 1997)[3] is a Swiss road and track cyclist, who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam Team Bahrain Victorious.[4][5]


Before turning professional on the road, Mäder was a high level track cyclist, having competed at the 2016 UEC European Track Championships in the team pursuit event.[6] He turned fully professional in 2019, with UCI WorldTeam Team Dimension Data.[7] In October 2020, he was named in the startlist for the 2020 Vuelta a España.[8]

On stage 7 of the 2021 Paris–Nice, Mäder was part of the breakaway, and nearly won the stage. However, in the final 50 meters, he was caught and outsprinted by Primož Roglič. He was given the combativity award for the day.[9]

Later in the year, Mäder rode the 2021 Vuelta a España. After losing three minutes over the first eight stages, he began to perform strongly starting on stage nine, when he finished seventh on the mountain stage to Alto de Velefique.[10] Over the rest of the race, he continued his strong performance while serving as a domestique for Jack Haig. On stage 17, which finished atop the Lagos de Covadonga, Mäder finished with the elite group that finished a minute and a half down on the race leader, Primož Roglič. The result lifted him inside the top ten on GC.[11] The next day, on the race's queen stage to Altu d'El Gamoniteiru [es], Haig and Mäder finished fifth and seventh, respectively, at almost a minute down, with Mäder moving up to eighth on GC.[12] On the race's penultimate stage, Mäder and Haig, together with Roglič, Enric Mas, and Adam Yates, comprised the five-man group that escaped from the GC group on the third to the last climb. The group continued to build their advantage over the other contenders, with the move allowing Mäder to rise inside the top five overall and Haig to move into the third spot on GC. Mäder also took the lead in the young rider classification as he overhauled Egan Bernal.[13] He held his position in the final day time trial to finish the Vuelta in fifth and confirming his victory in the young rider classification.[14]
