Movistar Team has announced the signing of promising rider Gonzalo Serrano for two years.

The Spaniard has been a professional for three years in the formation Caja Rural-Seguros RGA and has shown a talent for the tough courses. He has finished in the top-ten of the Tour of Turkey in 2019, did an outstanding performance in the uphill finish of Iznajar at 2020 Vuelta a Andalucia and has already been part of the National selection.

"I’m so happy to have the chance to join a strong squad like the Movistar Team, who are giving me the chance to race at the best events and alongside some of the best pros in the world," said Serrano. "On a short term, my goal is learning as much as possible and racing some one-day classics, which I feel will be a terrain suiting my characteristics well.

"I’ve always wanted to aim at that kind of races in the WorldTour, so now the goal is trying to make the most of every race I take part in and squeeze the upcoming years to keep growing as a rider and person."

"I’m certain Gonzalo is joining us at a pivotal time of his sporting career," added Movistar's General Manager Eusebio Unzue. "He’s already got experience in some of the toughest races in the sport, such as La Vuelta, and feel like he’s got the skills and quality to offer the team some brilliant moments in the WorldTour, like those he’s already brought to the Caja Rural squad.

"We’ll do everything at our reach to help him feel at home, continue his progression from these first few years and hopefully become a man who can excel also in the top tier."
