The young Swiss rider starts 2019 on a high, after being crowned U23 world champion at the end of last season and taking the step from the Development program to the WorldTour team.
Marc claimed the rainbow stripes with an audacious attack on a daring descent last September in Innsbruck, soloing to victory, a day that is undoubtedly his greatest achievement on the bike.
Also a junior world Madison champion on the track and European U23 champion last season, Marc is truly one of the most exciting riders of a generation.
His hero growing up was none other than Fabian Cancellara, as he was from the same city as him. He remembers a big celebration for the Olympic champion in 2008, as he was just starting to ride a bike.
A puncheur, one-day specialist, Marc is targeting races like Il Lombardia and Liége Bastogne Liége. He hopes Team Sunweb will help develop him and that is his focus now.
An open person, who enjoys life and makes the most of it, Marc is focused on both team and personal goals, motivated by achieving them.
Away from cycling, Marc has finished his military service, and enjoys swimming, badminton and catching up with friends.
