Mike Teunissen (born 25 August 1992) is a Dutch racing cyclist,[6] who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam Intermarché–Circus–Wanty.[7]

Career

He rode at the 2013 UCI Road World Championships, and was the winner of the World Under-23 Cyclo-cross Championships in 2013. He was named in the start list for the 2015 Vuelta a España.[8] In June 2017, he was named in the startlist for the 2017 Tour de France.[9]

In 2019, he had a top 10 finish in Paris-Roubaix. He was named to the start list of the 2019 Tour de France, where he was intended to be a leadout man for Dylan Groenewegen. Late in stage one as the sprint trains were coming together there was a crash, which eliminated Groenewegen's chances and ruined the team's plans of getting the stage win and yellow jersey. Teunissen seized the moment, knowing he was already in a good position, and went for the stage win anyways. He just barely edged all-time great Peter Sagan on the line, winning the Yellow Jersey in the process.[10] The following day he was part of another stage victory in the team time trial, which gave him one more day in the race lead.[11]
