Dylan Groenewegen, born 21 June 1993, is a Dutch professional road racing cyclist with UCI WorldTeam Team Jayco–AlUla. He boasts an impressive record with five individual Tour de France stage wins, one team time trial win at the Tour de France, a Dutch National Road Race Championship title, victories in five stages of the Tour of Norway, five stages of the Tour of Britain, and three stages of Paris–Nice. His career faced controversy in 2020 when he was involved in a crash at the Tour de Pologne that severely injured Fabio Jakobsen, resulting in a nine-month racing ban for Groenewegen.

Born into a working-class family in Amsterdam, Groenewegen was introduced to cycling through his grandfather, Ko Zieleman, a custom bike frame builder. Groenewegen initially trained as a frame-builder before pursuing professional cycling. He made his mark in cycling with Team Roompot before joining LottoNL–Jumbo in 2016, where he achieved significant successes, including his first Tour de France stage win in 2017.

Throughout his career, Groenewegen has shown resilience and skill, bouncing back from setbacks, including the ban in 2020. In 2022, he signed with Team BikeExchange–Jayco and added 7 wins to his achievement list including including stage wins in the Tour de France, Tour of Slovenia, and several other races.

In 2023 Groenewegen boasted an impressive 6 wins with stage wins in the Saudi Tour, Tour de Hongrie, UAE Tour, Tour of Slovenia and the Veenendaal–Veenendaal Classic and notable finishes in other races such as the Scheldeprijs and Gooikse Pijl. 2024 started off strong with a win in the Clàssica Comunitat Valenciana 1969.
