Gloria Rodríguez

‘GLORIA’ DEPENDS ON HER. Absolutely no pun intended. She was actually the one who got Eider Merino into an impressively favourable position to win the 2018 Spanish Road Race Championships with a magnificent breakaway towards Culla (Castellón), where the first national jersey for the women’s Movistar Team was sealed. Rodríguez also remembers well how proud she was when pushing at the front of the bunch when Aude Biannic took the lead in the 2018 Lotto Belgium Tour GC with her prologue win. And Gloria’s work, amongst many others’, helped Lourdes Oyarbide finish third in the 2019 Lotto Thüringen Ladies Tour. She doesn’t know a better way of personal fulfilment than giving out her best for her team-mates.

THE HEART OF THE GROUP. Yet, it’s not just about sporting prowss in Gloria’s case. She’s not the best Movistar Team rider in terms of individual results, and it’s because of her absolute will to help others. More importantly, she’s got that unique ability to help the group get together, take care of her team-mates in and out of the race, and making the Telefónica-backed squad feel like a bunch of friends, more than at any other organisation. When she was forced to abandon the 2019 Giro Rosa, due to a knee injury she spent half the race suffering with due to a crash on stage two, it hurt more to her team-mates than herself. Because everyone loves her, because of her affable character and absolute commitment.

KEEP ROLLIN’. Between the road and the track, this hugely talented rider has built a successful career from youth stage and all the way up to the pros, including podiums at track World Championships as a junior. A specially remarkable series of performances came in 2016: she took silver in the Spanish TT champs in Alicante in June, later adding a fantastic rojigualda jersey as national champion in October at the Individual Pursuit event held in the Palma arena – where she even lapped her rival for gold. Rodríguez briefly got back to the banking for a second gold in the Individual Pursuit at Valencia’s Luis Puig Velodrome, just a week after the end of her 2018 road season.
