Lennard Kämna (born 9 September 1996) is a German professional road racing cyclist who rides for UCI World Tour team Team Sunweb. He rode with Team Stölting in 2015, before his team and Cult Energy Pro Cycling merged for the 2016 season.[2][3][4]

Career[edit]

In 2014, he became the junior world champion in the individual time trial at the UCI Road World Championships,[5] having already won the German and European championships at the same level earlier in the year.[1]

A year later, he finished third in the under-23 time trial at the World Championships in Richmond. His effort was impeded by strong winds and light rain, a fact that benefited first and second placed Mads Würtz Schmidt and Maximilian Schachmann, who both started earlier in the day.[6] In June 2015, he also became the German under-23 champion in the time trial.[7] In his first year as a professional, he won the German under-23 Bundesliga and became German champion at the mountain (Deutsche Bergmeisterschaften).[8][9] On 14 September 2016, Kämna won the gold medal in the under-23 time trial event at the European Road Championships in Plumelec, France.[10]

He was named in the startlist for the 2017 Vuelta a España.[11]
