Aleksandr Vlasov is a Russian-born professional cyclist on the Bora-Hansgrohe team. Vlasov is considered an all-round rider and targets the overall classifications at major stage races.

The Russian turned professional with Gazprom-RusVelo in 2018, winning the U23 version of the Giro d’Italia in his first full season. He signed for Astana at the start of 2020 and finished 11th overall at the Vuelta a España. A year later he finished on the podium in both the Tour of the Alps and Paris-Nice before taking fourth at the Giro d’Italia behind eventual winner Egan Bernal.

In 2022 Vlasov won the Tour de Romandie after taking the yellow jersey on the final stage of a dramatic week of racing. He went on to finish fifth at the Tour de France.

The Russian enjoyed a consistent start to the 2023 campaign as he went in search of glory at the Giro d'Italia, finishing fifth at the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana and ninth at Tirreno-Adriatico. However, misfortune then troubled the 27-year-old, with Vlasov falling sick at the Giro and subsequently having to withdraw from the race.

Rejuvenated in the second half of the campaign, the Bora-Hansgrohe climber finished third at the Clásica San Sebastián as well as a few top placings at the Italian classics, even though his Vuelta a España campaign was slightly subdued amidst reports of discord with co-leader Cian Uijtdebroeks.

Vlasov has a contract with Bora-Hansgrohe through to the end of the 2024 season, and will balance his interest alongside those of new teammate Primož Roglič.
