Alba Teruel

TWO VICTORIES IN HER NEW COLOURS. Teruel’s debut season with the Movistar Team as saw her coming victorious twice. Her maiden success arrived at the GP La Burundesa, ending round of the Spanish National Series near the team’s headquarters in Sarriguren, and the second one, at the Spanish National Championships, saw her beating her U23 rivals to take the bands with a solid 8th spot combined, gold in the ITT and silver in the road race. The Valencian rouleur considers everything she’s learned during the last season won’t only help her on the races. “These are values which are useful for your own personal life,” remarks the Benigànim native.

THE YOUNGEST ONE. Being just 22, one can say Teruel has spent her whole life on the bike. Even if cycling was only one of many sports she took up as a young lady, supported by her dad, a passionate aficionado. That obvious inexperience hasn’t prevented her from keeping a strong line of progression towards a career-changing 2017, where she shone at international events. That was the case in the BeNe Ladies Tour, where he showed up into the breakaways alongside strong competitors and even finished 7th into the final stage. In 2018, she took a very decent 4th spot at the GP Dottignies (Belgium) and completed a solid Lotto Thüringen Ladies Tour, in the lead of the under-23 classification for four days.

CONSOLIDATION. Her win in the overall classification of the Torneo Euskaldun -with two victories (Barrundia and Lakuntza) and no less than seven top-ten finishes- was a confirmation of her strong progression in terms of results and consistency, and helped her joining the top tier of women’s cycling with the Movistar Team. Before joining the Blue squad, she also took overall honours in her ‘home’ race, the Volta a València, and a strong 10th-place finish in the Madrid Challenge, appearing for a second consecutive year at the World Championships’ road race with the Spanish national team.

 A restless, polyvalent talent, she is a former under-23 Spanish cyclo-cross champion. Alba always ambitioned to race abroad and learn from the best in the sport in order to get to her fullest potential. Following three years of patient developments at Lointek, the Movistar Team has helped the Benigànim native in the Valencia countryside show her courage and quality.
