Movistar Team has announced the signing of Colombian climber Miguel Angel Lopez for the 2021 season.

After weeks of speculation, the Spanish formation has confirmed the signing of the Colombian rider, who won the Queen Stage at the 2020 Tour de France and has finished on the podium in the Giro d'Italia and the Vuelta a España. The 26-year-old has also taken the overall victories in races like the Volta a Catalunya, the Tour de Suisse and two stages of the Vuelta a España.

"I’m so happy to be part of one of the most important teams in the world of cycling," said Lopez. "As I’ve always done, I’ll try to achieve my fullest potential to represent the Movistar Team and the people of Colombia in the best possible way.

"This has always been a very significant team for my home fans and a crucial factor for the growth of the sport in Latin America, so I’m excited to join them next year."

"Miguel Ángel López’s signing marks a really important addition to our men’s team," added Movistar's General Manager Eusebio Unzue. "Having him aboard, we’ll not only enjoy the services of an experienced rider of great results, but also the style of racing from someone who always conceives this sport on the attack, trying to catch the rivals by surprise.

"He’s someone who knows well what it takes to step onto the podium of the Grand Tours, and who’s achieved important victories in one-week stage races. His addition to the team further bolsters our potential for the big tours in 2021."

The Colombian is the fifth signing for the male's Movistar Team for 2020, following the announcements of Ivan Garcia Cortina, Gregor Mühlberger, Abner Gonzalez and Gonzalo Serrano.
