A thoroughbred climber, Kenny Elissonde arrives in Trek-Segafredo after three years with Team Ineos. Kenny can provide heavy-duty support in the mountains, a critical role in the Grand Tours and hilly stage races. In his early years as a professional, his superior climbing ability landed him a stage win atop the infamous Angliru in the 2013 Vuelta a España. Throughout his career, he has excelled as a super-domestique, riding in support of riders like Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas. With Trek-Segafredo, he will continue in the same role, backing Richie Porte, Bauke Mollema, and Vincenzo Nibali in the mountains. Kenny has ridden the Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a España numerous times but has yet to start the big one in his home country, the Tour de France.
