Carlos Barbero

SPEED. While not being a pure sprinter, Carlos Barbero is the biggest hope of the Movistar Team when it comes to bunch kick. A resistant rider who copes well with mid mountains and uphill finishes, his good finishing speed has already seen him taking more than a dozen victories in the pro scene and coming close to many others – like the Spanish road race championships, where team-mate and idol Alejandro Valverde denied him victories in 2014 and 2015 while still being part of the Caja Rural team.

ASCENDING LINE. Since he took the leap towards professional cycling in 2012, Barbero has always been moving forward and getting stronger, both on pure performance and his position inside the peloton. Carlos started at two Continental (3rd division) outfits, Orbea and Euskadi; later moved on to ProConti (2nd division) with Caja Rural; and in 2017, he started what has so far been a successful career with the Movistar Team. Actually, in 2018 he was, together with Richard Carapaz, the second most winning rider for the Blues.

RAW QUALITY. The last season has been a continued show of well-measured, strong performances. His maiden WorldTour year with the Movistar Team has seen Barbero claiming five victories -the second most winning rider after Valverde-, including a GC success (Alentejo) and more than twenty top-20 placings. He’s also profited from the WorldTour leap to ride some of the most prestigious classics, which are bound to be his main goal for the upcoming years. In 2018, he notched up three victories at the Vuelta a Castilla y León, the Vuelta a Madrid and the Vuelta a Burgos.

 He’s one of few graduate cyclists in the Spanish WorldTour peloton. He finished studies of Industrial Mechanic Engineering in mid 2017, a degree he’s successfully combined with top-class cycling during the last few years.

 In late 2014, he witnessed in his own flesh how irresponsible some drivers can be against cyclists. Barbero warned one of them about his pass priority into a roundabout, which the driver had not respected, and received several punches as a response by the two occupants of the vehicle, whom he had to denounce later on at a police station.
