Einer Rubio

REALLY HUMBLE BEGINNINGS. Einer Rubio’s story as a professional rider starts when his whole family is forced to move away from hometown Chíquiza, in the Boyacá department, due to the drought affecting their potato fields and keeping their stable from being properly fed. They headed towards the Colombian capital, Bogotá, where Einer, once he finished secondary school, started working in the construction industry, and saved some money to buy a bike made of iron, with which he got back to training on the road. Still a junior rider (2015 / 2016), Rubio started to make a name as one of the most promising talents in the country, which made an Italian headhunter put his eyes on him so he could earn a place in the European peloton.

BREAKTHROUGH. Despite the adaption to the Italian language and culture taking its time, Einer soon achieves good results in the ever-competitive ‘dilettanti‘ calendar. In 2018, he won a stage of the U23 Giro d’Italia, the GP Capodarco and another stage of the Giro del Friuli -the latter, in front of no less than Tadej Pogacar-, showing impressive regularity during the season and earning a spot into the Colombian national team for the mountanious Innsbruck Worlds.

BIG STEP FORWARD. In 2019, Rubio confirmed his skills for longer stageraces by getting into the podium of the Giro, 2nd, between fellow countrymen Camilo Ardila and Juan Diego Alba. They weren’t team-mates, since the two were riding for the national team while Einer represented his trade team, Aran – Vejus. Alba, a Boyacá native like Rubio, will be his best support into a structure that will feature four Colombian riders, including Patiño and Betancur, who hail from Antioquia.

 Einer was part of the youth team supported by Esteban Chaves, a real factory of talent, which has seen two of its pupils stepping up towards the WorldTour in 2020: Santiago Buitrago (Bahrain-McLaren) and Einer himself. Esteban celebrated their leap towards the top tier back in November 2019, with this heartwarming message.
