Tony Gallopin (born 24 May 1988) is a French professional road racing cyclist, who currently rides for UCI ProTeam Lotto–Soudal.[2]

Career

Born in Dourdan, Île-de-France, Gallopin currently resides in Angerville.[3][4]

After two seasons with the RadioShack–Leopard squad, Gallopin joined the Lotto–Belisol team for the 2014 season.[2]

On 13 July 2014 Gallopin escaped in a breakaway on Stage 9 of the Tour de France, gaining almost 8 minutes on the leader Vincenzo Nibali to take the yellow jersey. Three days later, on Stage 11, Gallopin escaped from the main peloton on the final descent into Oyonnax to win the stage by a whisker from the chasing pack.

Gallopin married fellow racing cyclist and former French national road racing champion Marion Rousse on 18 October 2014.[5]
