Rider profile

Richie Porte lines up for his second season with BMC Racing Team in 2017, having proven himself as a Grand Tour leader in 2016 when he showed strength and determination by finishing fifth at the Tour de France in his first attempt as a leader.

After second place finishes in 2015 and 2016, Porte opened the year by stamping his authority on the Santos Tour Down Under with two solo stage wins, including his fourth consecutive win on the Willunga Hill finish, and the overall victory.

The Australian recently added the overall win at the 2017 edition of the Tour de Romandie to his solid palmares which also includes Paris-Nice, Volta Ciclista a Catalunya and Giro del Trentino.

If he hasn’t been on the top step, Porte has recorded a string of podium finishes and stage wins at week-long UCI WorldTour races where he has climbed with the best in the peloton. Porte’s strength on the climbs is backed by his speed against the clock, with the Australian clocking consistent podium finishes in time trials.

After an impressive start to the year season, the former Australian National Time Trial champion has taken his total number of professional wins up to 26, a number which only looks set to rise further. At 31 years old and entering his eighth year as a pro, Porte is one of the best stage and Grand Tour riders in the peloton.
