Lorena Llamas

REALLY CLOSE TO THE WIN. A great team-mate and a crucial support for the team leaders, Llamas touched a maiden victory in Blue colours during the 2018 “reVolta”, the women’s event created by the Volta a Catalunya. The second half of the race was a tight contest between the Catalan climber and Lauren Stephens (CPC). Llamas tried to leave her contender behind before the last lap, but Stephens ultimately bested him into the sprint. Her second-place finish was the fourth podium for the Blues in just a month and a half’s racing. Also notable were her 6th place in the Spanish road race champs and her great support for García’s podium in the Tour de l’Ardèche.

FROM GRASSROOTS TO WORLD CLASS. The modest Frigoríficos Costa Brava-Naturalium squad in Girona was Llamas’ first step towards pro racing in 2015. Her flawless work in support of the following year’s Spanish Cup overall winner, Anna Kiesenhofer, and some good individual results -3rd in La Rioja, 2nd in Marín- granted her another leap forward to Bizkaia. Following two remarkable seasons, she’s now a part of the first-ever Movistar Team.

HER WINS. She raised her arms victorious for the first time with Bizkaia, and she did twice: early in the season, at a Madrilian race in Buitrago in March, and then at a leg of the Spanish cup, in Basque village Aiztondo, in the month of May. Even if it wasn’t to be for Lorena in her maiden Movistar Team, she won’t stop looking for success in 2019 – or make things easier for a quite more solid, experienced team next year, the Catalan being a key factor for those results.

 She hadn’t got on a road bike before 2012, following some years of minor-league athletics. She didn’t start putting on backnumbers of elite races before 2014. And until 2016, she didn’t have a pro contract with a UCI squad (Bizkaia-Durango). A huge leap came in 2017: from competing into bunches made of junior or master riders, she took on the best women’s cycling rivals and completed an Euskal Bira in the top-20, or even won Spanish Cup races.

 Joining world-class racing in 2017 meant Llamas had to leave the work she’d been at for the past nine years as administration support at a supermarket in her home Igualada: “Having to jump from the office tasks Monday to Friday (and even some Saturdays) to training rides and competitions was crazy. I’m so happy to have a chance at Movistar to focus 100% on racing.”
