ABOUT Martin Salmon

This 19-year old German fluently speaks English, with both of his parents coming from the UK. His dad wasn’t a pro but he was good at a local level and got the chance to ride races. He was Martin Salmons biggest inspiration to start cycling.

Salmon won a stage in the U23 GP Général Patton in 2015 where he also finished in sixth place in the general classification. That year, Martin also came fifth at the World Championships MJ Road Race and he won the second stage of Trofeo Karlsberg. 

“I am excited to join Team Sunweb. My first impressions show a very professional operation. We’ll have a strong team and I’m looking forward to joining it and living in the area of the team base where I can combine my cycling career with my study of Physics in Aachen. The team has offered me a great opportunity to pursue those two goals.”

The German doesn’t focus too much on one goal. “I want to improve and always try to get the best out of myself and I hope this team gives me perspectives on what’s best for me. I’m an all-rounder. I want to develop my skills on the mountains and I hope I can be part of the breakaways.”

“My dream is to be part of cycling, I want to experience the life of a professional cyclist. Through cycling you’re able to see a lot of places and meet new people. I hope to learn a lot from it.”
