Jos van Emden (born 18 February 1985) is a Dutch professional road bicycle racer, who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam Team Jumbo–Visma.[2] He is known as a time-trial specialist.

Career[edit]

Born in Schiedam, van Emden started racing in 2005. During his second year, he won four stages in three different races, became the overall winner of two other stage races and finished seventh in the under-23 road race at the 2006 UCI Road World Championships. The next year, he achieved his first professional victory when he won the Münsterland Giro.[3]

His debut in a Grand Tour came in 2009, when he took part in the Giro d'Italia. One year later, he finished ninth in two different stages of that same race, and achieved two time-trial victories in one week, winning the prologues of the Delta Tour Zeeland and the Ster ZLM Toer. Later that year, he was the winner of the Dutch National Time Trial Championships.[4]

Van Emden made international headlines when he proposed to his girlfriend during a time-trial stage of the 2014 Giro d'Italia. After she accepted, he finished the stage 120th out of 156 starters.[5][6]

In 2015, van Emden finished second in the time trial stage of the Tour of California, sitting in the leader's hot seat all day before being beaten by Peter Sagan.[7] Two months later, van Emden participated in his first Tour de France; he finished fifth in the opening time-trial that took place in his home country.[8] His biggest victory for the time being came when he won the time trial stage of the Eneco Tour, subsequently gaining the right to wear the leader's jersey.[9]

He was named in the startlist for the 2016 Vuelta a España.[10]

In 2019 van Emden won the Dutch National Time Trial Championships for the second time.[11]
