Simon
Pellaud

Swiss Simon Pellaud is returning to the WorldTour with Trek-Segafredo after five years at the Continental and ProTeam level. The 29-year-old is entering his 10th year as a professional, and has blossomed into a breakaway specialist who loves nothing more than to be on the attack.His first go at the WorldTour was in 2015 with IAM Cycling, but with the team folding the following year, he restarted in the Continental level with US-based Team Illuminate. After two seasons in the USA, he returned to Switzerland and joined Pro Team Androni-Sidermec, where he showed off his aggressive skills, notably at the 2021 Giro d’Italia where he won the breakaway award (Premio della Fuga) for the rider on the attack for the most kilometers (783 kms!). Simon’s gritty spirit and vast experience will be an immediate added value to the team.
