Albert Torres

A LEGEND IN THE VELODROME. Such qualification is what deserves the excellent palmarès of Menorca’s Albert Torres, who has got himself eleven times on the podium of World and European Championships, including five gold medals in the Omnium and Madison events -and a rainbow jersey in 2014 (Cali)-. At both races -supported by Sebastián Mora at the latter, both joining the Movistar Team in 2020-, the Spaniard will try to complete a brilliant career on the track with a medal in the Tokyo Olympics.

BETWEEN ROAD AND TRACK. His good sprinting abilities have helped him claim fine results at some points of his road career, starting with his national u23 road race title in Albacete, in 2010. In the last few years, Torres has featured in bunch sprints at the Challenge de Mallorca, the Vuelta a La Rioja or the Volta a Portugal, while also claiming a UCI victory at the 2017 Vuelta Independencia Nacional, in the Dominican Republic. Should a chance arise for him during the season, he will have a strong weapon to fight with.

ALL AROUND THE WORLD. He’s worked hard for nearly a decade to earn this chance he now has in the WorldTour. He was a stagiaire twice, with teams Geox (2011) and Androni (2012), before joining the Team Ecuador (2014-2016) and preparing himself together with Mora for the Ro Olympics at Team Raleigh-GAC (2016). He then went on to Dominican team Inteja (2017-2018) before training with no UCI trade team during the 2019 season, seeking for a decent infrastructure to ride with – which he will now enjoy at the Movistar Team.
