Jorge Sanz

A member of the group of coaches working for the Movistar Team since 2013, he took the leap towards the management group as sports director for the women’s team in 2018, a labour he wasn’t a stranger at after being part of the Lointek squad for two seasons. At the Sopelana-based squad in the Basque Country, he got to know some of the riders which now make part of the Telefónica-backed outfit.

A master’s degree in High Performance on Team Sports and licenciate in Sciences of Physical Activity and Sports, Sanz is part of a family really focused on sports: he’s the brother of Enrique, several years part of the Movistar Team; nephew of Eusebio; and son of Enrique, carer and rider for the team when it was called Reynolds. His character, professionalism and huge expertise have been a key to the development of the members of the women’s squad.
