Spanish rider, telephone squad’s top winner of the season with 5 victories, to prolongue agreement with Movistar Team through 2013
Fran Ventoso will ride with Movistar Team for the next two seasons. The telephone squad has come to an agreement with the Spanish sprinter to extend for one more year the contract linking him to the squad through next season, so the commitment between the two will last until the end of 2013. At this point of the season, Ventoso is the most winning rider of Movistar Team.
Five victories, the first one coming already in January at World Tour’s opener on Australian soil -a stage win in the Tour Down Under-, came as Ventoso triumphed in Andalusia and twice in Castilla y León, just before his grand success of the season at Fiuggi, during stage 6 of the Giro d’Italia. Ventoso, aged 29, is making his eighth season as pro, having notched up 27 victories.
