ABOUT Lennard Kämna

22-year-old Lennard Kämna is without a doubt one of the most talented youngsters in peloton. As a time trial specialist, he has won several titles at the national, European and world championships, both as a junior and U23 rider. Last year he showed his huge talent whilst racing at professional level with the team.

In 2017 Kämna made his Grand Tour debut at the Vuelta a España. After a strong debut during the first two weeks, Lennard unfortunately had to withdraw due to a knee problem. This enabled him to prepare for the world championships in Bergen, where he impressed by winning the silver medal at the U23 time trial world championships and was a part of the team that won the team time trial world title. “It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life so far. I knew we could ride for a good result, but I didn’t expect that we had any chance to beat teams like BMC and Sky. Everything went right that day and we were in such a good flow, I think that’s part of the beauty of sport. You can always extensively prepare, but you can only excel when everything comes together. That’s exactly what happened in Bergen.”

Training, talent and rest are the secrets to his success. The king of powernaps, he takes every chance he can to get some extra sleep. His approach for 2018 will not differ much from last year. “I want to develop myself in general, so I am able to grow in all disciplines of cycling. Maybe in the future I will specialise in a single discipline, but for now it’s all about development.”
