Wesley Kreder (born 4 November 1990) is a Dutch former road racing cyclist, who competed as a professional from 2013 to 2023.

Career

Born in Leiden, Kreder has competed as a professional since the middle of the 2012 season,[5] joining the Vacansoleil–DCM team as a stagiaire, having been a member of the Rabobank Continental Team from 2010 onwards. Kreder achieved his first professional victory in October 2012, making a late-race attack at the Tour de Vendée, and held off the field by two seconds.[6] Kreder remained with the team full-time into the 2013 season.[7]

Kreder joined Wanty–Groupe Gobert for the 2014 season, after his previous team – Vacansoleil–DCM[8] – folded at the end of the 2013 season.[9] In September 2014 it was announced that Wesley, Michel and Raymond Kreder would sign with the new Team Roompot squad for 2015.[10]

Personal life

Wesley's brother Dennis, and cousins Michel and Raymond are all professional cyclists; Dennis was a team-mate of Wesley's at Van Vliet–EBH Elshof in 2009, while Michel and Raymond were team-mates at Roompot–Oranje Peloton in 2015 and 2016.[10]
