Matthias Brändle (born 7 December 1989) is an Austrian professional road bicycle racer for UCI WorldTeam Trek–Segafredo.


In 2012, he rode for Team NetApp.[2] He was the 2009, 2013 and 2014 Austrian National Time Trial Champion and won two consecutive stages of the 2014 Tour of Britain.[3]

In October 2014, he followed in the footsteps of his agent Tony Rominger by setting a new hour record, breaking the month-old record set by 43-year-old Jens Voigt under new regulations introduced by the UCI in June 2014 allowing the use of modern track pursuit racing bicycles.[4][5][6] The record stood until 8 February 2015 when it was broken by Australian rider Rohan Dennis.[7]

He was named in the start list for the 2015 Tour de France.[8] He won the Austrian National Road Race Championships in 2016.[9]
