About Tejay van Garderen:

Tejay van Garderen (born August 12, 1988) had a successful career both as a junior and as an adult amateur.

As a young pro racing in 2008 for the Dutch Rabobank Continental team (he already spoke Dutch) he made an immediate impression with a stage win in the Tour de l'Avenir and second-places in the Flèche du Sud and Circuito Montañes.

In 2010 he moved to Mark Cavendish's & André Greipel's Team HTC-Columbia where he continued to develop, gaining some good placings along the way.

The HTC team folded after the 2011 season and van Garderen signed with Cadel Evan's powerful BMC team. Though he had to work as a domestique for Evans, he also began to really shine with some impressive wins and high placings.

He finished his career with the EF Education First team and retired in 2021. After retiring from racing he became a director sportif for the team, in 2022 titled EF Education-Easy Post.

Many of his wins are as either an individual time trialist or as a member of a time trial team. Van Garderen could put out the watts.

He won only one Grand Tour road stage, the 2017 Giro d'Italia's 18th stage.
