ABOUT Maxime Gressier

“I was eight years old when I signed up for my first cycling club. Within the first week I took part in a race without any experience, with no idea how fast I could ride and no idea how to cycle in a peloton. I gave everything, cycled like crazy, broke away with a small group and finally finished in second place. That experience was amazing” says the Frenchman from the northern city of Dunkirk. “My biggest inspirations were Fabian Cancellara Frank Vandenbroucke. I wanted to ride as fast as they did.”

Maxime Gressier is a strong rider with a good time trial. He feels at ease whilst competing in the spring races. Alongside his studies of Nutrition this ambitious 18 year old wants to grow as a cyclist and become a professional in the coming years. With riding on cobbles his favourite, he dreams of winning Paris-Roubaix as a professional. But first Maxime wants to support the team leaders in achieving great results.

“I am very happy to join Team Sunweb. This is a great step for the beginning of my career and a great opportunity to be part of a prestigious team. The team has a lot of WorldTour knowledge and experience which offers me the possibility to make progress and potentially grow towards turning pro. I like their step-by-step approach in coaching with a clear goal in mind.”
