Warren Barguil (born October 28, 1991 in Hennebont ) is a French cyclist .


Barguil began his international career in August 2011 as a stagiaire with the French UCI Continental Team Bretagne-Schuller , where he was able to clinch his first victory in the Tour de l'Avenir . In August of the following year he also drove as an intern for the Dutch UCI Professional Continental Team Argos-Shimano . That year he also won the overall standings at the Tour de l'Avenir, his first victory in a stage race . From the 2013 season he drove with a regular contract with Argos-Shimano. By participating in the Vuelta a España , he drove one of the Grand Tour for the first time and was able to win two mountain stages after a long escape. The finish sprint of the 16th stage between Barguil and Rigoberto Urán was so close that the decision was only made in favor of Barguil after viewing the finish photo . In 2014 he reached eighth place overall at the Vuelta a España . He finished the 2015 Tour de France in 14th place.

On the second stage of the Tour de Romandie 2017 , Barguil fell hard again and broke his left pelvic bone. In the subsequent Tour de France , he celebrated his first stage success on the French national holiday . He won the mountainous 13th stage in the sprint of a top group of four and the 18th stage with the goal on the Col d'Izoard as a soloist. In addition, he was beaten by Rigoberto Urán in the photo finish in the sprint of a six-person leading group on the 9th stage . He finished the tour as the winner of the mountain classification . Barguil was also named the most combative driver .

Barguil switched to
Fortuneo-Samsic for the 2018 season

Later that year, Barguil started at the Vuelta a España , but was withdrawn from the race by the team management after the seventh stage due to discrepancies over tactics. Barguil had demanded that he no longer wanted to drive in the mountains for the goals of the team, but for himself. After his removal from the Vuelta, he announced that he would leave the Sunweb team immediately. He had already signed a three-year contract with the Breton second division Fortuneo-Oscaro for the 2018 season.

At the Tour de France 2018 he could no longer build on the successes of the previous tour with his new team, he finished second in the mountain classification and finished the tour in 17th overall. He suffered serious injuries in a fall during the second leg of Paris – Nice 2019 ; a first diagnosis was a double vertebral fracture, after a medical examination this was corrected for whiplash . Just two weeks later he started the Tour of Catalonia and fell on the final stage, suffering a fractured pelvis; The German driver Simon Geschke was also injured in the mass fall . At Paris – Nice 2020 he was disqualified for the rest of the race after the first stage because, according to the racing jury, he had driven too long in the slipstream of the team car after a fall to regain connection with the peloton.
