Road to the Tour de France

Alpine course (5-12) preceeds Tour de Suisse (11-19), Route du Sud (16-19), National Championships in Europe (22-26) on the Movistar Team's path towards the 2016 Tour de France

Full of renewed energies after a difficult, yet successful Giro d'Italia for them, the Movistar Team gets back into racing after the 'Corsa Rosa' as they start to approach the #SueñoAmarillo, Nairo Quintana's quest of the Tour de France. Exactly a month before the Manche department holds the Grand Depart, the Blues announce the eight-man group José Luis Arrieta and José Luis Laguía will lead into the 68th Critérium du Dauphiné (Sunday 5 – Sunday 12).

Nelson Oliveira, back into competition two months after his arm injuries in Paris-Roubaix, will join a group full of climbers. Dani Moreno, Jesús Herrada, Rubén Fernández, Marc Soler, Dayer Quintana, Antonio Pedrero and Fran Ventoso complete the line-up.
