Héctor Carretero

MONUMENTAL DEBUT. Very few riders have been able to race four of cycling’s five Monument classics of the season in their ‘freshman’ year. Carretero only missed Liège as he lined up for all Sanremo, De Ronde, Roubaix and Lombardia. However, he didn’t only do that, but also was part of other important, one-day WorldTour races in his debut: San Sebastián, Québec, Montréal, E3 Harelbeke, Dwars door Vlaanderen, Plouay, Hamburg and Gent-Wevelgem. Last year, he was part of the Movistar Team’s winning squads at the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana (Valverde), Paris-Nice (Soler) and the Vuelta a Aragón.

WORLDS AND EURO CHAMPS. Still an under-23 rider in 2017, Carretero was able to race the Bergen World Championships road race in Norway in his category despite being a WorldTour competitor. He also lined up at the European Championships in Herning (DEN), yet with the elite Spanish national team – and at the two events available for him. He finished 52nd in the road race and a respectable 20th in the individual time trial, where he shared the honour of representing his country alongside then-teammate Víctor de la Parte.

MORE THAN JUST A MAN FOR THE FLAT. Known for his power for flat races and notable TT skills, he’s still a rider in development whose physical abilities allow him getting through the smaller mountains with strength. He’s thus a good allrounder, and he already proved that in his first pro season with an excellent showing in the Bretagne Classic – formerly known as GP Plouay – with a long break and a swift final attack, only caught 2km from the finish. A good glimpse of what’s to come for the Albacete native. In 2018, he came close to a top-ten finish at the Spanish ITT Championships in Castellón, just 2″ behind new teammate Lluís Mas (10th).
