Alejandro Valverde, Nairo Quintana and Marc Soler will be the main men for Movistar at the Volta a Catalunya.

The team has the main objective of winning this Spanish race for the third time in a row after Quintana took the victory in 2016 and Valverde in 2017. Soler, who was third in the overall classification of 2017, will also try to get a good result.

Valverde will continue testing his 2018 form after spending the last part of 2017 recovering from the injuries sustained at the first stage of the Tour de France. Meanwhile, Quintana, who took the victory of the race ahead of Alberto Contador and Dan Martin, will use this race as part of his preparation for the 2018 Tour de France.

With this roster, Movistar shows to be one of the strongest contenders and confirms its intentions of continuing the winning streak in the Spanish race.

The Volta a Catalunya will start on March 19 in Calella and finishes in Barcelona on the 25th. The women's team of Movistar will also take part in the event that will take place on the last day of the race on the Montjuic circuit of Barcelona.
