ALREADY IN THE HISTORY BOOKS. The 23-year-old allrounder from Asturias has already left her 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 Jorge Sanz’s team in the Setmana Valenciana. On stage one, she came 4th behind winner Barnes (CSR) in Gandía; a day later, she finished 3rd in Vila-real. The week’s results led her to a fantastic third spot overall, behind South African Ashleigh Moolman (CBT) and Barnes.
ALLROUNDER. A really explosive rider -one who sprints well and responds quickly to moves from her rivals-, but also a resilient one, Alicia González is one of the most powerful cards for the Movistar Team all season long. In 2018, other than her extraordinary debut in Valencia, she claimed a decent 3rd place in La Classique Morbihan and a bronze medal in the Spanish ITT Champs, not to forget her 5th place in the road race.
GOLDEN GENERATION. The 1994 and 1995 promotions have brought most of the talents that will reign on Spanish cycling for the next few years. Together with three of its most illustrious names -big friend and team-mate Eider Merino plus Sheyla Gutiérrez and Lourdes Oyarbide-, the Asturian aspires to take full advantage from the power of the white ‘M’ to keep helping women’s cycling in her country move forward.
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. 2018 was her first year exclusively devoted to bike racing.
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.
