Nathan Peter Haas (born 12 March 1989) is an Australian professional road racing cyclist, who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam Team Katusha–Alpecin.[3]


Early career[edit]

Born in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, Haas was originally a mountain biker, and represented Australia in two UCI World Championships. However, in 2009, Haas switched to road racing.

Praties (2009–2011)[edit]

In 2011, after dominating Australia's domestic National Road Series with Genesys Wealth Advisers teammate Steele Von Hoff, Haas won the Herald Sun Tour.[4][5] Haas also won the Japan Cup,[6] a race featuring numerous UCI ProTeams. After his victory, Haas turned professional, signing with Garmin–Barracuda.[7][8]

Garmin–Barracuda (2012–2015)[edit]

During Haas' first professional season, he struggled with severe saddle sores.[9] Following Jonathan Tiernan-Locke's doping ban, Haas was retroactively awarded the 2012 Tour of Britain title; he originally finished second to Tiernan-Locke.[10] During the 2013 season, Haas finished sixth overall at the Tour de Langkawi,[11] and competed in his first Grand Tour, the Giro d'Italia.[12] While riding the 2014 Tour Down Under, Haas garnered his first UCI World Tour point,[13] before finishing the race fifth overall.[14]

He was named in the start list for the 2015 Tour de France.[15]

Dimension Data (2016–2017)[edit]

In the autumn of 2015 Team Dimension Data announced that Haas had signed with them for the 2016 season, joining former team-mate Tyler Farrar at the South African outfit.[16]

Team Katusha–Alpecin (2018–present)[edit]

In February 2018, Haas won stage 2 of the Tour of Oman in an uphill sprint finish and moved into the overall leader's jersey.[17] It was his first victory since 2016 and his first for Team Katusha–Alpecin. He finished fifth overall in the race, winning the points classification in the process. He also recorded a podium placing at the Tour of Turkey.[18]

Personal life[edit]

Haas currently resides in Girona, Catalonia, Spain.[1]
