Jorge Arcas

CONSISTENCY AT ITS BEST. An ever-dependable allrounder, Jorge Arcas’ strengths have always been the same since he was a very young, promising rider. A solid amateur, with more than ten victories in his last two years with development team Lizarte, he paid back Eusebio Unzué after relying on him for a two-year, neo-pro contract at the end of 2015, the veteran manager hoping to build a strong rider who continues the legacy of excellent domestiques within the Abarca Sports organisation. Despite being only 25, he has already shown great manners and strength to cope with the needs of the team at the most relevant events of the season.

ROUGH VUELTA A ESPAÑA DEBUT. What had been a long-time dream for Jorge – racing a Grand Tour – turned into a nightmare in Nîmes in late August, 2017. His debut in the Vuelta a España was soon ruined – as early as 1km into the opening team time trial- as a serious crash while in the lead of the Blue train forced him to go through tremendous pain to just keep the pace of the bunch for almost two weeks. Jorge ended up leaving the race on stage 12. The 2018 season wasn’t easy for Arcas, either: at the Tour of Flanders, he sustained a broken radius into a crash – which he fortunately recovered quickly, within a month, with great rehabilitation work to get back to racing at his home Vuelta a Aragón.

CRADLE OF CYCLING. Born in Sabiñánigo, one of the most-known cycling towns in the Pyrenées and close to Biescas, the home place of Fernando Escartín – one of the best riders in the world in the late 1990s -, Arcas preceeded many brilliant prospects in the region, which will have no less than four pro riders in the 2018 season, Jorge’s team-mate Jaime Castrillo, Fernando Barceló and Sergio Samitier (Murias) being the other three. Quite a success for Huesca, one of the least populated provinces in Spain.

 His overall good performances all over his first pro season granted him a place inside the fourteen-man preselection announced by Javier Mínguez for the Qatar World Championships (2016).

 Having spent his whole amateur stage at the same squad (Lizarte), he’s previously been team-mates with five of his colleagues at the current Movistar Team: Soler, Pedrero, Carapaz, Carretero and Castrillo.
