Ramūnas Navardauskas (born 30 January 1988) is a Lithuanian professional road racing cyclist who rides for UCI WorldTeam Bahrain–Merida.

Biography[edit]

After four years in the amateur ranks, Navardauskas turned professional with Garmin–Cervélo in 2011.[4]

During the 2012 Giro d'Italia, Navardauskas finished sixth in the opening individual time trial; twenty-two seconds shy of American Taylor Phinney (BMC Racing Team).[1][5] In stage four's team time trial, Garmin–Barracuda were victorious, and Navardauskas took the race lead. He became the first Lithuanian to wear the pink jersey.[1][6] However, Navardauskas lost the jersey to Italian Adriano Malori (Lampre–ISD) on stage six. In April 2015, Navardauskas won the Circuit de la Sarthe by a single second over Manuele Boaro, winning the race for the second consecutive year.[7]

Born in Šilalė, Lithuania, Navardauskas currently resides in Oliva, Valencia, Spain.[4]
