Nairo Quintana and Alejandro Valverde are set to be the captains for Movistar at the upcoming Vuelta a España. As it was rumoured the day before, Mikel Landa won't be at the Spanish grand tour.

The day started with the Spanish team confirming the news that was rumoured the day before: Mikel Landa couldn't recover on time for the race. Moments later, the entire roster for the grand tour was announced.

As it was revealed weeks before, Quintana and Valverde will lead the team at the Vuelta. The original idea was to repeat the three-man leadership that Movistar tried at the Tour de France, but the circumstances didn't allow it.

The team is set to travel to Malaga, the city that will host the opening stage, on Wednesday.

Complete roster of Movistar for the Vuelta a España (25th of August-16th of September):

Nairo Quintana
Alejandro Valverde
Andrey Amador
Winner Anacona
Daniele Bennati
Richard Carapaz
Imanol Erviti
Nelson Oliveira
