Pavel Alekseyevich Sivakov (Russian: Павел Алексеевич Сиваков; born 11 July 1997) is a Russian cyclist, who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam Ineos Grenadiers.[4] He is also a citizen of France.

Personal life[edit]

Sivakov is the son of Russian former cyclists Alexei Sivakov and Aleksandra Koliaseva. He was born in Italy, but grew up in Soueich, Haute Garonne in France.

Career[edit]

In August 2017 it was announced that Sivakov would turn professional with Team Sky, joining the team on a three-year contract from 2018.[1]

In August 2018, he was named in the startlist for the 2018 Vuelta a España.[5]

In April 2019, Sivakov won Stage 2 of the Tour of the Alps, his first professional victory. He held the race lead for the rest of the race, taking overall victory by 27 seconds ahead of teammate Tao Geoghegan Hart.[6]

In May 2019, he was named in the startlist for the 2019 Giro d'Italia.[7] Sivakov finished 9th overall in only his second Grand Tour.[8]

Sivakov took overall victory at the 2019 Tour de Pologne after a second place on the first mountain stage and a finish among the peloton on the final stage. Sivakov took the leader's jersey after the last stage, after previous leader Jonas Vingegaard suffered larger losses. Sivakov finished ahead of Jai Hindley of Team Sunweb on the sixth stage and overtook the Australian by 2 seconds, thanks to time bonuses. UAE Team Emirates' Diego Ulissi completed the podium, 10 seconds down on Hindley, and 12 in arrears of Sivakov.[9]

In August 2020, he was named in the start list for the 2020 Tour de France.[10]
