The Movistar Team confirmed Wednesday it has reached an agreement for the next two seasons (2022-23) with Iván Sosa (Pasca, Cundinamarca, COL; 1997), a current member of the INEOS Grenadiers squad.
Sosa, a really talented climb, has got, despite being just 23 years of age, a good five years of pro experience on his shoulders. His palmarès features more than a dozen UCI victories, including two overall titles in the Vuelta a Burgos (2018-19), with three consecutive victories atop the Lagunas de Neila; the 2021 Tour de La Provence -with a mountain-top finish win at the Chalet Reynard / Mont Ventoux-; the Queen stage of the 2019 Route d’Occitanie, ahead of Alejandro Valverde; and GC victories in one-week stageraces like the Adriatica Ionica Race or Romania’s Tours or Sibiu and Bihor.
REACTION / Iván Sosa:
“I’m so proud to be joining the Movistar Team. I’m really excited to join my new team-mates and start getting things done with these great group of people. I’m joining with all the willingness to show the kind of rider I am, support my team-mates and keep some good consistency. I hope to bring them joy and satisfaction with my work, and hopefully our years together are full of happiness and success, which is what everyone wants.”
