Antonio Pedrero

A HUGE STEP FORWARD. 2019 was a career-defining season for Antonio Pedrero. His extraordinary performances in the Giro d’Italia earned him recognition globally, with a climbing pace fundamental to secure Richard Carapaz’s overall victories. Antonio, who rode two Grand Tours that year -also doing really well in La Vuelta-, also had opportunities to shine individually, with good results in Burgos (4th) and Ordizia (6th).

PURE CLIMBER. His strengths have remained unchanged since he was a young future prospect: consistency, stamina and climbing prowess. Pedrero is one of those who ride through mountains at a steady pace, with no explosive pace changes, keeping a smooth cadence which copes well with the most demanding cols. He’s got a really solid future ahead, and he knows to wait and how to build it in the best possible way, working for the team’s interest

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.

 His father, José, also rode as a professional in the late 1980s. He competed for five seasons as part of the Caja Rural, Teka and Puertas Mavisa squads, and rode the Vuelta a España twice in 1991 (58th) and 1992 (40th). He’s now the general director for a Movistar Team rival: the Massi-Tactic UCI women’s outfit.
