Bauke Mollema, one of the team's leaders, joined Trek-Segafredo in 2015. He has completed the Tour de France eight times, three times finishing in the top 10. In the 2016 Tour, Bauke was sitting in second place, poised for the podium, until a crash in stage 18 ended the dream. Bauke rebounded like a champion – taking an emotional victory in Clásica Ciclista San Sebastián one week later. In 2017, Bauke won stage 13 of the Tour – his biggest career win – and added his first monument, winning Il Lombardia last season. Bauke's never-say-die attitude has captured many victories over his career and won over many fans' hearts.
