ABOUT Felix Gall

The 18 year old Felix Gall first made contact with cycling trough triathlon, which he started competing in at the age of 14. After two years he quit triathlon and continued cycling, he didn’t anticipate that his career would develop so quickly.

2015 was an amazing year for the Austrian cyclist. In an exciting sprint finale with his new team mate Clement Betouigt-Suire, he became junior World Champion in Richmond. A fourth place at the European Championships time trial in Estonia helped him to gain the title of ‘Austrian Junior-sportsman of the year’.

Gall still believes its important for him to finish business school and a compete in a variety of sports, next to cycling. “It’s fun to do different things. I think it’s also good to exercise a wide range of muscle groups. In winter it’s very cold in Austria, so training at the pool and gym are good alternatives. I also enjoy cross-country skiing and mountain biking.”

The young Austrian is very happy to become part of Team Sunweb. “I’m looking forward to ride in such a professional setting. The Development Team will take advantage of the science and infrastructure that are available in a WorldTour team, which was an important consideration for me when making my decision.”

This curious and sometimes a bit chaotic Austrian has lots of ambition. “First I’d like to gain experience in short stage races with the Development Team. After that, I hope I can make the step to a professional level. I also want to find out what my specialism is. I like climbing and time trails and I think I can go fast in the final kilometre of a race. “I’m inspired by every cyclist who always has goals in mind and fights for them, no matter what happens. My ultimate dream is to win a prestigious race as a pro cyclist, like a hard one day race or a stage at a Grand Tour.
