Christophe Laporte (born 11 December 1992 in La Seyne-sur-Mer) is a French professional cyclist who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam Visma–Lease a Bike.[4]

Career

Laporte was a member of Cofidis from 2014 to 2021.

Laporte at the 2018 Tour de France

He was named in the Team Cofidis start list for the Tour de France for seven consecutive years between 2015 and 2021,[5][6] completing all but one of them.

In 2022 he joined Jumbo-Visma, among the most powerful teams in cycling, and in his first major stage race with the team led the podium sweep with Primož Roglič and Wout Van Aert on stage 1 of Paris–Nice.[7] In the 2022 Tour de France, he was a key teammate of leader Jonas Vingegaard, was instrumental in helping the team win three different jerseys, and also won stage 19 at Cahors.[8] This was a rare win in that he attacked after the sprint trains were already operating at top speed, and actually held off the remaining elite sprinters long enough to win the stage.
