Nelson Oliveira

One of the world's best specialists

BRILLIANT TT SPECIALIST. His fourth place in the 2017 World time trial championships, or the 8th spots at the 2019 (Yorkshire) and 2022 (Wollongong) ITT Worlds, are a proof of his splendid TT abilities. He’s also been a four-time national champion of Portugal; third in the 2016 Tour de France longest TT, behind Dumoulin and Froome; and 7th in the Rio Olympic Games. Always focused on supporting the team leaders, he doesn’t miss his chances to shine as an individual, both in TTs -3th in the 2020 La Vuelta (Ézaro), silver medalist in the 2019 European Games- and road races -runner-up overall in the 2021 Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana, where he also came close to a time trial stage victory-.

VUELTA STAGE WIN. Nelson came into the pro stage after great performances in the under-23 scene -bronze medalist in the Mendrisio ITT Worlds (2009), two medals at the European Champs in Turkey (2010)-, yet wasn’t able to show his real colours early into his career due to physical setbacks. In 2014, though, his ‘revenge’ came in La Vuelta, taking a spectacular win on stage 13 in Tarazona as he left behind a 30-strong breakaway with a strong, intelligent solo attack inside the final 25 kilometers.

MULTITASKER. He’s not only a world-class TT specialist: Oliveira also won the 2014 Portuguese road race Championships. His power on flat stages and resistance into the mountains -small hills and even big cols at times- have made him a coveted team player for the Grand Tours, which he has been part of seventeen times (8 Vueltas / 6 Tours / 3 Giros). He doesn’t do bad on one-day classics, either: he’s finished 12th in San Sebastián and twice within the top-20 of the Ronde van Vlaanderen.
