Antonio Pedrero

Excels in the mountains

HIS BEST YEAR. Very few victories have been more celebrated by the whole Movistar Team organisation than those notched up by Antonio Pedrero at the 2021 Route d’Occitanie. A serious, committed, humble rider, not a fan of any ostentation, a ‘diesel’ climber, always devoted to team duties, who was finally able to raise his arms victorious in Europe atop the Le Mourtis climb, and conquer, a day later, the overall classification of the French event. It was the perfect icing to two excellent months from the Catalan, who finished 2nd in the Vuelta a Asturias GC and offered great performances over the mountainous stages of the Giro, especially at Cortina d’Ampezzo -caught by Egan Bernal with 3km from the last summit of the day- or Sega di Ala (8th).

CYCLING AS WAY OF LIFE. Son of Jose Pedrero, a former professional rider and later CEO of the women’s Massi-Tactic team, and cousin of Alba Díez, also a former track rider, he always shone in the youth stage as a consistent rider for the moutnains. His whole WorldTour career has been covered in Movistar Team colours, working his heart out for the team, just like in the Blues’ 2019 Giro success, or claiming good individual results -4th in the Vuelta a Burgos (2019), 19th in the 2020 Giro d’Italia-.

EXOTIC MAIDEN WIN. His first victory as a professional rider came in a somewhat surprising way. In the summer of 2015, Antonio was offered a chance to join Continental team Inteja from the Dominican Republic, a squad he debuted with at the Tour de la Guadeloupe in the French Caribbean. The win did not come until the ninth, final stage, via a strong attack in the last kilometer uphill in Basse-Terre, a move which also allowed him getting to the third place overall. It was one of his final outings before joining the WorldTour in 2016 with the Movistar Team.
