This post serves as an hub for Movistar Cycling Team 2022.
I describe briefly the team plans for the three Grand Tours and what bikes they start the season with. I will keep on updating this page as I review each rider’s bike size and fitting. Links will be added to each rider.
Movistar Cycling Team 2022 has eight incoming transfers to replace the eight riders who left at the end of their contract. Among them are Alex Aranburu (Ex-Astana), Iván Ramiro Sosa (Ex-Ineos) Will Barta (Ex-EF) and Vinicius Rangel Costa a Neo Pro from Brazil.
As the biggest Spanish pro cycling team it is obvious the main target is to win the Vuelta a Espana especially as this year is the last race of Alejandro Valverde long professional cycling career.
Nonetheless the two other Grand Tours GC are also top priorities on the Movistar team agenda.

VALVERDE Alejandro, ARCAS Jorge, BARTA Will, LAZKANO Oier, PEDRERO Antonio, ROJAS José Joaquín, SAMITIER Sergio, and SOSA Iván Ramiro are aiming to do a top GC at the 105th Giro d’Italia.
Nelson Oliveira, Enric Mas and Carlos Verona will tackle the 109th Tour de France‘s GC podium.
Enric Mas and Carlos Verona will help Alejandro Valverde to finish his career on top of the GC podium at the 77th La Vuelta ciclista a España.
