Alexey Tsatevich (born 5 July 1989) is a Russian professional road bicycle racer, who currently rides for UCI ProTeam Team Katusha.[1]


Born in Verkhnyaya Pyshma in the then-Soviet Union, Tsatevich has competed as a professional since the start of the 2012 season, when he joined Team Katusha,[2] having previously competed for the squad's feeder team Itera–Katusha – in 2011. After several top ten placements during the 2012 season, Tsatevich achieved the first win of his professional career in February 2013, when he won the 1.1-categorised Le Samyn race in Belgium.[3][4] Tsatevich attacked with around 500 m (1,600 ft) remaining, and was able to beat the peloton to the line, in Dour.[5]

He was named in the start list for the 2016 Giro d'Italia.[6] On Stage 9, the individual time trial, Tsatevich was fined for drafting behind Tobias Ludvigsson. Further to this, Team Katusha took the step to withdraw him from the race.[7][8]
