CareerEdit

In 2014, he became the junior world champion in the individual time trial at the UCI Road World Championships,[6] having already won the German and European championships at the same level earlier in the year.[1]

A year later, he finished third in the under-23 time trial at the World Championships in Richmond. His effort was impeded by strong winds and light rain, a fact that benefited first and second placed Mads Würtz Schmidt and Maximilian Schachmann, who both started earlier in the day.[7] In June 2015, he also became the German under-23 champion in the time trial.[8] In his first year as a professional, he won the German under-23 Bundesliga and became German champion at the mountain (Deutsche Bergmeisterschaften).[9][10] On 14 September 2016, Kämna won the gold medal in the under-23 time trial event at the European Road Championships in Plumelec, France.[11]

He was named in the startlist for the 2017 Vuelta a España.[12] In July 2019, he was named in the startlist for the 2019 Tour de France.[13]
