Movistar Team will be taking part form Wednesday 13th in the 26th Vuelta a Castilla y León, a five-day stagerace with two key points for the GC: a mountain-top finish in the Laguna de los Peces on Friday and a decisive individual time trial in Zamora on Saturday.

For the Castillian race, the squad directed by Eusebio Unzué, whose structure took nine out of eleven victories in the editions between 1993 and 2003, will line up in Medina de Rioseco with Xavi Tondo, 5th in the recent Vuelta al País Vasco. Alongside the Catalan rider, the squad will have Fran Ventoso –who will be looking for his options in the sprint-, Sergio Pardilla, Mauricio Soler, Pablo Lastras, Javeir Iriarte, Carlos Oyarzun and Branislau Samoilau. José Luis Jaimerena will be directing the team during the week, the race concluding in Medina del Campo on Sunday.
