Jorge Arcas

Humilty and teamwork

IT’S YOUR TIME NOW. As Imanol Erviti and José Joaquín Rojas retired from professional cycling, Spaniard Jorge Arcas, an ever-dependable all-rounder, is now destined to fully take on his role as Movistar Team road caption. A ninth-year member of the Blue outfit, this committed, lovely man from Aragón -father of Jaime; husband of Mariluz; son of Begoña and José Antonio, all of which are big references of his life- has earned respect from team-mates and rivals alike with his character and sympathy.

THE BIGGEST STAGE. His enormous consistency and a significant leap forward in performance during 2021 allowed Jorge a chance at the race most riders dream about: the Tour de France. He then went on to become the first piece of support for his leaders in all terrains, notably in the early part of the stages, and made it to Paris in his first appearance, adding a ‘Grande Boucle’ to his other five GT appearances, including four La Vuelta caps (2017, 2019, 2020 and ). In 2022, he also rode the Giro d’Italia for the first time.

CRADLE OF CYCLING. Born in Sabiñánigo, one of the most-known cycling towns in the Pyrenées and close to Biescas, the home place of the famous Fernando Escartín, Arcas preceeded many brilliant prospects in the region, which also features the likes of Jorge’s team-mate Sergio Samitier and experienced, former WorldTour racer Fernando Barceló (Caja Rural). Quite a success for Huesca, one of the least populated provinces in Spain.
