This page focuses on the Movistar Cycling Team 2023.
On this page, you will find information about the Movistar team riders, their bikes, and wears specification.
Ultimately, I will add a link to each rider as I document his bike size and specification during the racing season.
It takes some time before the whole list of riders can be documented, and I plan to do it over several seasons. Patience is a virtue.

The Spanish team had a somewhat quiet 2022-2023 inter-season with only two riders leaving the team and three new faces joining.
Among the two riders who left the team, Iñigo Elosegui transferred to the team Kelme.
And the other rider is none other than Alejandro Valverde, retiring from professional road racing after a 20 years career at the forefront of Pro cycling.
The three new faces joining Movistar Team are Fernando Gaviria (ex-Team UAE Emirates, Ruben Guerreiro (ex-EF Education-EasyPost), and Yvan Romeo (ex-Hagens Berman Axeon).
Movistar Team UCI abbreviation on races is MOV.
Grands Tours Selection
Movistar Team races the 2023 UCI World Tour calendar including the Paris-Roubaix and the three Grand Tours.
Cortina García is racing the Paris-Roubaix 2023.
Fernando Gaviria and Einer Augusto Rubio are riding the Giro d’Italia 2023.
Enric Mas, Matteo Jorgenson, Ruben Guerreiro, Nelson Oliveira, and Jorge Arcas are racing the Tour de France 2023 for a top spot on the General Classification, if not the Maillot Jaune.
Being a Spanish team, The Vuelta a Espana is the second most important race for the team Movistar. Enric Mas, Carlos Verona, Óscar Rodríguez, José Joaquín Rojas, and Imanol Erviti are riding the Vuelta a Espana 2023 with the ambition to win it.
The Movistar Team is racing on Canyon bikes for the 2023 season.
The bikes are the Canyon Aeroad CFR, the new Canyon Ultimate 2023 model for mountain stages, and maybe Paris-Roubaix too.
The Canyon bikes of the Movistar Team are equipped with SRAM Red EPS 12 speeds groupset which includes the Quark Power Meter in the crank’s spider.
Movistar Team mechanics lubricate and wax the chains of the Canyon bikes with Blub Lube.
The Zipp carbon wheels are rolling on Continental tubeless, tubular, and clincher tires. Rim heights, tire types, and sizes depend on the race type and profile.
The three contact points of the Movistar team riders are the Canyon handlebar/stem combo wrapped with LizardSkin bar tape, Fizik saddle, and Look Keo Blade Carbon Ceramic Ti pedals.
The data from the Quark power Meter, the Garmin heart rate belt, and the Core body temperature sensor are monitored on the Garmin GPS cycling computers.
The riders of Movistar Team wear Abus helmets, 100% sunglasses, Gobik Team cycling jerseys, bib-shorts, socks and gloves, and Fizik cycling shoes.
