ALLROUNDER. A consistent, regular rider, one who can do well into a short field’s sprint and work incredibly hard for her team-mates, other than an intelligent lady who reads race strategies with enormous clarity, Alicia González is a huge plus for the Movistar Team. Wherever she goes, she’s ready to bring some huge assets to the table.
BACK IN THE SPOTLIGHT. Other than her excellent teamwork, 2020 was one of Alicia’s best seasons by virtue of her individual results. She was 3rd twice at the Tour de l’Ardèche, at a group sprint and a breakaway, and even 9th into a WorldTour classic, the GP Plouay. She also made part of the Blue roster for all autumn classics, both the Ardennes and the cobbles (Flanders, Gent-Wevelgem).
IN THE HISTORY BOOKS. González left a big mark in the Movistar Team palmarès, as the first rider from our women’s team to score a UCI podium finish: it happened at the debut of the Blue outfit, in the Setmana Valenciana, in February 2018. Her fantastic third spot overall, behind Ashleigh Moolman and Hannah Barnes, was a prelude to their team-mates’ excellent maiden season.
She’s got a degree in Biotechnology from the Oviedo University, which forced her to just go part-time with cycling until completing her studies.
She’s been the Spanish cyclocross champion at all categories: under-17, under-19, under-23 and – in a surprising, brilliant race – elite at the 2017 Valencia champs. There, she bested two rivals which hail from her same place (Siero, in central Asturias): Aida Nuño (silver medalist) and her own, older sister Lucía, who took bronze.
- Two 3rd places in the 2020 Tour de l’Ardèche.
- With Spain at the 2020 Setmana Valenciana.
- Supported by sister Lucía in Durango (2019).
- En route to 3rd overall in Valencia, 2018.
