Marcus Burghardt (born 30 June 1983) is a German professional road bicycle racer, currently riding for UCI ProTeam Bora–Hansgrohe.


Burghardt was born in Zschopau, Saxony, and raced as an amateur in the U-23 Wiesenhof team, with which he tasted success in the shape of the overall win at the Bundesliga Gerlingen in 2004. Burghardt turned professional in 2005, and won the UCI ProTour race Gent–Wevelgem in 2007, ahead of teammate Roger Hammond. He has also performed well in some races such as the Dwars door Vlaanderen and some stages of the Vuelta a España.

Burghardt gained a bit of notoriety on Stage 9 of the 2007 Tour de France when he hit a dog while on the course. He was also successful in winning Stage 18 of the 2008 Tour de France into Saint Etienne, beating break-away compatriot Carlos Barredo.

Burghardt signed with BMC Racing Team for the 2010 season. After seven years there, in August 2016 Bora–Hansgrohe announced that he would join them for 2017.
