Albert Torres

Full of commitment and great attitude

PARIS IN THE HORIZON. It’s an Olympic year again, and Albert Torres will look with hope towards the Games again, which had brought him so much motivation and public relevance. 2024 will, however, still be no less than his fifth WorldTour season, as part of a Movistar Team that was and remains a dream for him, having struggled so much to find such a place in the bunch. 2023 had a different focus for him: having raced the Tour de France the year prior, he was at the Giro this time -third appearance-, his sights set on helping out Fernando Gaviria as lead-our rider, though the Colombian wasn’t as lucky as he expected. Being the best support at flat stages and wherever he’s asked to by the team will again be -outside the banking- Albert’s duty at a group where he earned early prise, back in 2020, from no less than Alejandro Valverde (“Wish we had learned about him earlier”).

A LEGEND IN THE VELODROMES. Such is the consideration deserved by Albert’s brilliant feats, f0urteen times on the podium of Euro and World Champs and six times gold medalist at the Omnium and Madison events, including a rainbow jersey in Cali (2014). That career went to a provisional stop with the recent Tokyo Olympics, where his efforts and dedication, after such a difficult approach due to the pandemic, again gained him applause worldwide. In 2023, he was a silver medalist in the Points Race Worlds in Glasgow.

GLOBETROTTER. He fought for nearly a decade to earn his current chance in the WorldTour. Having been a stagiaire for both the Geox (2011) and Androni (2012) squads, he spent two years with the Team Ecuador; later made part of British outfit Raleigh (2016), where he shared teams with long-time racing partner Sebastián Mora, before the Rio Olympics; and embarked into a Dominican adventure with Inteja (2017-2018) before racing in the velodromes in 2019 with no UCI road squad. 2020 would mark his big chance, offered by Eusebio Unzué by advice from former team member, and Torres’ big support, Juan Martínez Oliver.
