Mattias Skjelmose

Mattias Skjelmose, a Danish professional road cyclist born on September 26, 2000, in Copenhagen, currently competes for Lidl - Trek. He emerged as a notable talent early in his career, securing impressive finishes in the junior categories of major races, including a victory at the Tour du Pays de Vaud in 2018. However, Skjelmose faced a challenging period when he was handed a ten-month suspension after a doping test detected traces of performance-enhancing substances, attributed to dietary supplements.

Bouncing back from this setback, Skjelmose returned to competitive cycling in 2019. He initially joined the UCI Continental team Leopard TOGT Pro Cycling before making the leap to the professional ranks in 2021 with UCI WorldTeam Trek-Segafredo, having already been part of the team as a stagiaire since 2020. Skjelmose's perseverance paid off in 2023 when he achieved significant milestones, including a second-place finish in La Flèche Wallonne, narrowly missing the top spot to Tadej Pogačar, and winning the Tour de Suisse, marking a major breakthrough in his career.
