Movistar Team (Spain) - Press Release: Key addition announced.
Prestigious brand to support Telefónica-backed squad with top componentry for the next two years in both the UCI WorldTour and Women’s WorldTour.
SRAM and the Movistar Team proudly announced Thursday their sponsorship agreement, which will see the Blues using SRAM componentry and Zipp wheels through 2021.
Founded in 1980, the men’s team has featured a long list of dynamic and predominantly Spanish cycling legends who’ve won a significant number of national, world, and grand tour titles. Amazingly, the team had three riders finish in the top ten at the 2019 Tour de France, including a current captain, Alejandro Valverde (ESP). Young Spanish climber Enric Mas, who has garnered several best young rider jerseys, will look to challenge at a major tour in 2020.
The women’s team was introduced in 2018, and is led by Spanish road champion Lourdes Oyarbide and Spanish individual time trial champion Sheyla Gutiérrez. In its short tenure the team has garnered seven national titles, and several major race wins.
