CAJA RURAL - SEGUROS RGA

Spanish Professional Continental Team Caja Rural-Seguros RGA has confirmed the signing of Colombian sprinting talent Nelson Soto.

The team announced its latest addition in a statement issued on Thursday, adding that the rider has signed a contract for two years.

"I am fast and I can also climb well over medium - mountain terrain. I opted to move to Caja as they have trusted in me and given me the opportunity to fulfill my dream of racing in Europe," the South American said.

"My objectives are to learn, gain experience and fight for wins. Now I will go to the Worlds to represent my country. Here I will participate against some of the best international cyclists with the Colombian jersey on my back which will be a dream come true for me."

Soto, who will support Fernando Gaviria at Bergen's road race on Sunday, was born in the city of Barranquilla in 1994 and turned professional at Coldeportes-Claro at the beginning of this year.

Since doing so, he won the Road Race of the Pan American Road Championships as well as three stages and the Points Classification in the Vuelta a Colombia.
