Lluís Mas

ALREADY IREEPLACEABLE. After his brilliant 2019 season, one can’t help but think Spaniard Lluís Mas’ leap towards WorldTour racing should have happened much, much earlier. An example of commitment, regularity and team spirit, other than excellent behaviour towards team-mates and rivals, the Balearic native shone with his teamwork at several races last season, even at top-ranked events such as the UAE Tour -for Valverde- or the Giro -for race winner Carapaz-.

SAFEGUARD AND SACRIFICE. Mas excels at protecting the team’s main leaders at the toughest days of wind, bad weather and high speeds, also adding strength to the TTT lineups that often play a crucial factor in Grand Tour success. Not to forget about ITTs: he’s actually one of the best Spanish specialists, 4th in the 2019 National Champs. A real powerhouse, a very courageous rider with amazing physical skills, his commitment will surely help the Blues at stages flat or even mountainous, as shown last year.

SEASONED AND CONSISTENT. Aged 30, he’s got already eleven years of professional experience under his belt, between Burgos (5 years), Caja Rural (another five) and the Movistar Team. Called up for the 2015 and 2017 World road race Championships, as well as 7th-placed in his first ITT Worlds appearance (Copenhagen, 2011, under-23), Mas has one UCI stage victory to his name in the 2015 Tour of Turkey, where he derailed the trains leading up to a sprint finish in Istanbul with a powerful attack, which saw him outclassing the likes of Mark Cavendish and Alessandro Petacchi.

Mas pours his heart out for his two sons. His family and animals are his way of chilling out in between races.

 A talkative, affable, jolly guy, his presence acts as relief for stressed-out groups in crucial races like a Vuelta a España. He once uploaded a video on social media showing how he stored his helmet into a fridge to protect himself from Andalusia’s heat in the summer.
