Alba Teruel

KEEPING ON LEARNING. 2020 is the third year in cycling’s top tier for Alba Teruel with the Movistar Team, the two previous seasons having witnessed significant improvements from this young Spanird from Valencia, who had previously raced for the Lointek squad. In 2018, she conquered the under-23 Spanish national ITT title and won the Navarra round of the National Racing Series; in 2019, she came close to a stage win in the Vuelta a Burgos -4th on stage one-, and competed in world-class events such as De Ronde, Yorkshire, Ardèche or the elite European Champs.

LOOKING FOR HEALTH AND OPPORTUNITIES. It wasn’t, however, an easy 2019 season for Alba, who sustained a big blow into a crash in the Lotto Thüringen Ladies Tour and saw her performance hampered and her chances to race bigger events diminished -she only had one more racing day with the Movistar Team since that month of May-. Should she be able to avoid any incidents in 2020, we will surely see a much stronger Teruel.

PASSION FOR BIKES. Aged only 23, one could say Teruel has spent her entire 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. Now, she carries the flag of a very small town, Benigànim, across the entire world.

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, and was close to taking a drastic choice before Movistar Team’s offer came in the summer of 2017. The help from the Blues has made possible for Alba to show her real courage and quality.
