Specialties and Strengths: Stage racing, time trials, one-day races
Stefan Küng may be young but he is definitely powerful and since turning professional with BMC Racing Team in 2015 he has shown time and time again that he has a huge amount of potential when it comes to racing and in particular, time trials.
Over the 2016 season, Küng produced consistently strong time trial performances including finishing 3rd on Stage 1 of Ster ZLM Toer - GP Jan van Heeswijk and 7th on Stage 9 of the Giro d’Italia. His show of skill on the BMC Timemachine saw him him selected as part of BMC Racing Team’s World Team Time Trial Championships squad for a second consecutive year.
The former European U23 Road Race and Time Trial Champion has also showed he can be up there with the best in the world when is comes to one-day races and stage racing with victories in 2015 at the Volta Limburg Classic and on Stage 4 of the Tour de Romandie.
