27 October 2012

Signing - Argiro Ospina

After success in their gamble with Nairo Quintana, the telephone squad will be recruiting Argiro Ospina (21), one of the biggest sensations in the recent Clásico RCN

Colombian youngster Argiro Ospina (turned 21 last September) will ride with Movistar Team for the next two seasons after the agreement reached with the squad directed by Eusebio Unzué. The South American rider was one of the biggest revelations in the recent Clásico RCN, where he won one of the most demanding stages in the races against some of the very best competitors in the Latin scene, showing his bright future on the climbs. 

After success in their gamble with Nairo Quintana last season, the rider from Boyacá having become one of the best World Tour debutants in 2012, Movistar Team is now aiming for more talent with Ospina, who rode within the ranks of Gobernación de Antioquia to earn success in Clásico’s day seven -close to a second victory two days later- and also win a stage in the Vuelta al Tolima.
