Stefan Denifl

Stefan Denifl (born 22 September 1987 in Fulpmes, Austria) is a professional cyclist, who last rode for UCI Professional Continental team Aqua Blue Sport.

Denifl began racing in 2001 with "Team Bike Denifl" as a mountain biker. In 2003, he moved to the road, riding for "Team ÖAMTC Recheis Lattella". From 2004, he focused on road cycling. In 2005, he was signed by Heiko Salzwedel for the T-Mobile Development Programme and included his first experience with the professional cyclists. In 2006, he signed with his first UCI Continental team Vorarlberger, and from 2007 to 2009 he was part of Elk Haus–Simplon. In 2009, he rode as a trainee for Cervélo TestTeam, and rode with them as a full professional the next year. In 2012, he rode for a year with Vacansoleil–DCM before joining IAM Cycling the following year. In October 2016, Aqua Blue Sport announced that Denifl, alongside IAM team-mate Leigh Howard, would be part of their inaugural squad for the 2017 season. After Aqua Blue disbanded in the later summer of 2018, in October of that year Denifl was initially announced as a member of the CCC Team for the following season. However, in December 2018 the team announced that they and Denifl had mutually agreed to cancel his contract due to personal reasons, which were not specified at the time.

In February 2019, Kronen Zeitung broke news that a number of professional cyclists had been implicated in the doping scandal uncovered at the 2019 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships. Later, Denifl confessed to blood doping in a police interview with CCC Team general manager Jim Ochowicz confirming that team's medical assessment of Denifl's biological passport showed no warning signs of blood doping. Denifl was handed a four-year ban on 27 June 2019. In January 12 2021, it was announced that Denifl would receive a two year prison sentence for fraud.
