Movistar Team extends Enric Mas’ contract through end of 2025
27 June 2022

Three more years in the Blue jersey

Spaniard, a two-time La Vuelta GC podium finisher and one of the most consistent stagerace competitors in the WorldTour, to continue wearing Telefónica-backed squad’s jersey in the future.

The Movistar Team’s biggest reference for the Grand Tours over the last few years will continue wearing the Blue jersey beyond 2022. The organisation managed by Eusebio Unzué will continue to trust in the talents of Enric Mas (Artà, Mallorca, ESP; 1995), who has re-signed for an additional three years -until the end of the 2025 season- with the Telefónica-backed squad, to lead the hopes of the longest-standing team in the WorldTour peloton.

An ever-improving, committed, consistent rider, Mas got back to the La Vuelta overall podium in 2021 as second-place finisher and finished in the top ten (6th) in the Tour de France. Despite bad luck with crashes, his 2022 has also been quite regular all around, with notable performances in Valencia, Tirreno-Adriatico, the Itzulia Basque Country or Liège-Bastogne-Liège. The Grand Tours of France and Spain will again be his biggest aspirations for this summer.

Enric Mas:

“It’s been a really easy decisition to take, because I had clear in mind for many months that remaining a Movistar Team member was the priority for me. Undoubtedly, the main reason to stay is the great group we have here, both the staff -of excellent technical and personal standards- and the riders, who leave everything on the road for you.

“It’s been a difficult few months to being 2022 with, with several incidents in Tirreno, País Vasco or Dauphiné which prevented me from offering my best level on the road, but that’s cycling and life for you – you’ve got to face things as they come and improve from every setback.

“I’m heading into this year’s Tour with huge excitement and ambitions. My goal for the upcoming three years is fighting for those overall podiums in the Tour / Giro / La Vuelta – and hopefully contesting victory at any of the Grand Tours, too.”
