Antonio Pedrero

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 solid future ahead, and he knows to wait and how to build it in the best possible way, working for the team’s interest. In 2018 he again obtained consistent results at Spanish races, like the Vuelta Asturias -5th in the Queen stage- or the Prueba Villafranca (also 5th).

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.

SHINING IN SPAIN. With no team leaders available for the 2017 Vuelta a España, Antonio took advantage from the opportunity to ride with freedom and became one of the race’s revelations, hobnobbing with the top contenders at some mountain stages –13th in Gijón, 15th atop the Cumbre del Sol, 16th in Sierra Nevada–. Before that display, he had already done well during the whole season, most notably at the Queen stages of Burgos (11th), Algarve (14th) or even a WorldTour GC like the Tour de Suisse (17th). It was definitely a step forward for the Catalan climber, after a solid 2016 where he also offered details of quality in the Tour de l’Ain (10th).

 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).
