Pascal Ackermann (born 17 January 1994) is a German cyclist, who currently rides for UCI ProTeam Israel Premier Tech Academy.[5]

Career[edit]

Born in Kandel, Ackermann joined the Rad-Net Rose Team team in 2013, and spent four seasons with the team. In August 2016 Bora–Hansgrohe announced that Ackermann would join them for the 2017 season.[6] In 2018, he took 9 wins, including the London–Surrey Classic and the German national championships.[7] His first pro win was stage five of the Tour de Romandie in April.

In May 2019, he competed in the Giro d'Italia,[8] where he won the second and fifth stages,[9][10] and became the first German rider to win the points classification in the Giro d'Italia.[11] He also won Eschborn–Frankfurt only 11 days before the start of the Giro. In total, he took 13 victories that year.

In October 2020, he entered in the Vuelta a España,[12] where he won the ninth and eighteenth stages.[13][14]

After five seasons with Bora–Hansgrohe, Ackermann signed a two-year contract with UAE Team Emirates from the 2022 season.[15] He won his third stage of the Giro d'Italia in 2023 on stage 11.[16]

The following season, he joined Israel–Premier Tech on a two-year contract.[17]
