Contract renewal

Essex boy to remain into telephone squad's roster after excellent 2014 season, including Tour of Britain GC lead and gold medal in Glasgow's Commonwealth Games TT

After two remarkable seasons that included his debut -with a stage win- in a Grand Tour, the 2013 Giro d’Italia, and consistent performances both as a domestique and in his individual chances as a time trialist, Alex Dowsett has signed a new, three-year deal with the Movistar Team, staying until 2017 with Eusebio Unzué’s squad.

Dowsett claimed two victories in 2014: the TT in the Circuit de la Sarthe, which he led for one stage, and the Commonwealth Games time trial in Glasgow, where he beat two big specialists in Geraint Thomas (SKY) and Rohan Dennis (BMC).

His magnificent breakaway to yellow in the Tour of Britain ten days ago earned him even bigger popularity among fans, which along with his team-mates expect him to reach even higher steps in a career still far from its peak -he’ll turn 26 on October 3-.
