Key values for telephone squad remain loyal to Unzué's roster after remarkable performances throughout the 2015 season
The Movistar Team announces on Friday that four members of its current roster have signed new contracts with the squad: Andrey Amador (CRC), Adriano Malori (ITA), José and Jesús Herrada (ESP).
Amador and Malori both had a breakthrough season in 2015. The Costa Rican claimed an excellent 4th place in the Giro d'Italia overall, a feat that has turned him into one of the country's biggest sportspeople ever. In turn, the Italian has shone again with five time trial victories -including the Tirreno-Adriatico prologue, after which he wore the leader's jersey for two days, and the National TT title- and outstanding teamwork, also delivered by Andrey wherever he raced. Adriano is already finetuning his form before the World TT Championships in Richmond, USA, where he will certainly be a podium contender.
The Herrada brothers have become an undeniable reference for the squad. José debuted in the Tour de France with big success this season, showing consistence and regularity into the mountains, while Jesús was as strong as ever, with good performances in Asturias -stage + GC podium-, the Giro, the European Games in Bakú, the Vuelta a Burgos or the Tour du Limousin, where he took a stage win and contested the overall success until the very last sprint.
