Przemysław Niemiec (born 11 April 1980) is a Polish road racing cyclist for UCI ProTeam UAE Team Emirates.[1]

Career[edit]

He made his professional debut in 2002 for the team Amore & Vita–Beretta. Born in Oświęcim, Niemiec won the 2005 Tour of Slovenia and the 2006 edition of the Tour of Tuscany. He has also won a number of stages of the Route du Sud and finished sixteenth alongside the leading competitors at the 2008 Summer Olympics.

In 2013, Niemiec had top ten finishes in many stage races including the Giro Del Trentino, the Volta a Catalunya, and in the Tirreno Adriactico. After finishing 3rd in the 2013 Giro del Trentino, Niemiec was selected to Team Lampre squad at the Giro d'Italia and he rode in support of Michele Scarponi, where he had a very solid 6th-place finish.

He won the biggest victory of his career at that point at the 2014 Vuelta a España. He was part of an early breakaway and won solo on the final climb to Lagos de Covedonga.[2]
