Kyle Murphy (born October 5, 1991) is an American professional racing cyclist, who currently rides for UCI ProTeam Rally Cycling.[3]

Career[edit]

His first professional season was in 2015, riding for Lupus Racing Team,[4] and he rode in his first U.S. National Championship. His 8th place at that event drew the attention of several other professional teams and he later rode as a stagiaire for Caja Rural–Seguros RGA at the USA Pro Cycling Challenge. Murphy was third in the King of the Mountains competition and rode in the main breakaways on three stages. He rode in the men's team time trial at the 2015 UCI Road World Championships.[5] He joined Team Jamis for 2016; after they disbanded at the end of the year, he signed with Cylance Pro Cycling for the 2017 season. In October 2017 Rally Cycling announced that Murphy would join them for 2018.[4]
