Marco Haller (born 1 April 1991) is an Austrian professional road bicycling racer, who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam Team Katusha–Alpecin.[1]

Career[edit]

Born in Sankt Veit an der Glan,[2] Haller took his first win on the UCI World Tour, at the 2012 Tour of Beijing, in a mass sprint where he had the upper hand on established sprinters such as Alessandro Petacchi (Lampre–ISD) and Elia Viviani (Liquigas–Cannondale).[3] In 2015, he was the surprise winner of the Tour des Fjords after featuring in the last stage's breakaway.[4]

He was named in the start list for the 2015 Tour de France for the first time[5] where he got into the breakaway of the day on stage 16 and was caught by the bunch before the last climb of the day together with Adam Hansen.[6] He won the Austrian National Road Race Championships in 2015.[7]
