Julian Alaphilippe is set to start his 2019 season in South America. The Frenchman's two first races will be the Vuelta a San Juan and the Tour Colombia.

Alaphilippe just finished a successful 2018 season in which he took two stage victories at the Tour de France and GC wins at the Amgen Tour of California and the Tour of Britain. The rider will fly to Argentina in January and from then will go to Colombia.

"Last season was truly memorable, but that’s history now and the only thing that matters is what next year will bring in terms of results," said Alaphilippe. "I’m very motivated to keep the ball rolling, add to the results I have enjoyed together with this fantastic team and show what I’m capable of, as I’m confident I haven’t reached my limits yet.

"Starting early, in Argentina – a country of which I’ve heard only great things from Max Richeze – and then in Colombia, where I took my first win in 2018, will give me the chance to find my legs right away after the off-season and lay the foundation for what I hope to be another beautiful and memorable year."
