Bauke needs little introduction. He is one of cycling's elder statesmen, with five career Grand Tour GC top 10s — three in the Tour de France, and two in the Giro d'Italia — and iconic wins at Clásica Ciclista San Sebastián and Il Lombardia to go with three Grand Tour stages. He has been a fan favorite with Lidl-Trek since 2015 thanks to his never-say-die attitude. If you haven't watched him race, he's sure to win you over, too.
