Carlos Verona

MADE FOR THIS TEAM. The relationship between Carlos Verona and the Movistar Team started well before he was a professional athlete: the Madrilian still raced as a junior when he was first met by Eusebio Unzué. Now, aged 27, the man hailing from San Lorenzo de El Escorial is a well-considered Blue member after six other years of WorldTour experience -four with Quick Step; two with Mitchelton-Scott-, following his debut with Burgos-BH at the age of only 18. It all means Carlos has got up to nine years of pro experience, despite still being in his late twenties.

DEBUT IN FRANCE + PROGRESSION. A tall, strong allrounder (1.86m, 68kg), able to get through the biggest mountains as well as riding strong on hilly courses and flat terrain, Verona has two Giro d’Italia appearances and three Vuelta a España caps to his name, plus a maiden participation in the Tour de France in 2019, where he rode his heart out for the team’s GC hopefuls.

ALWAYS LOOKING FOR HIS LEADERS. The last few seasons have seen the Spaniard support world-class names such as Esteban Chaves, the Yates brothers, Nairo Quintana and Alejandro Valverde, without leaving individual aspirations aside either. In 2019 he did well into breakaways at the Volta a Catalunya, the BinckBank Tour or the Tour of Britain; finished 5th in the GP Miguel Indurain; and took a top-ten finish at the Gran Piemonte, finishing atop the Santuario di Oropa.

 Carlos isn’t the only household name in his family. His sister, Marta, is also known in Spain, but not because of bikes, rather than cuisine: she was the winner of the sixth edition of the popular TV show MasterChef in our country. They shared a video together on Carlos’s YouTube channel, cooking some natural energy bars without gluten.

 More importantly than a rider, he’s a husband and dad – of two! Following the birth of his first child, Berta, in 2017, a new baby came for his wife, Esther, and him in 2019: the little Leo. They all live in Andorra, where Carlos shares training rides with many of the Movistar Team members currently staying in the Principality.
