Caja Rural-Seguros RGA has confirmed the signing of Uruguayan rider Mauricio Moreira. With this addition, the Spanish team completes its roster for the 2018 season.

The 22-year-old rider is taking a step up from the development team, which he rode for during the last two seasons. In his first year in Europe he took four victories in U23 races and in 2017 he won the Vuelta a Zamora and one stage at the Vuelta a Sevilla, two of the most prestigious races on the Spanish amateur calendar.

"The past two years with the development team have been a huge learning curve, many tough moments but also many shared successes," he commented. "To be able to make the step up to the pro team is a real pleasure for me and to be able to join my fellow countryman Fabricio Ferrari is an added plus as he is someone I look up to in the sport.

Moreira expects to continue learning and developing his strengths in the team. "I think the long, hilly races suit me best - I'm not a pure climber but I can be competitive over hilly terrain. My objective is to continue progressing as I have been over the last number of years, to adapt to the jump in level and to learn as much as I can from the other riders and staff. I'll be there to help the team as much as possible and to work for our leaders whenever necessary."
