Óscar Rodríguez

A great local hope

BACK HOME. Óscar Rodríguez will return to a home team in 2022 – actually, to the most quintessential Navarra team. volverá a formar parte de un equipo navarro -del equipo navarro por antonomasia, de hecho- en 2022. Raised from young age in the Club Ciclista Villavés, and forged in the unbeatable Lizarte development squad, the Burlada native will compete for a squad from this northern region of Spain after starting his pro career with Murias and, up to the WorldTour, with Astana for the last two seasons (2020-21). His signing is excellent news for the Abarca Sports organisation, with two Navarra members in its roster, a figure they weren’t reaching since 2015, as Óscar continues the legacy carried for so many years by the great Imanol Erviti.

A DEBUT TO REMEMBER. The first three-week stagerace Óscar competed at will always be unforgettable. The 2018 La Vuelta saw him claiming his first professional victory, and one to be really proud of. Crowning a strong break against the likes of Majka, Teuns or the late Bjorg Lambrecht, the Spaniard raised his arms victorious on the impossible slopes of La Camperona, and brought the home fans one of the biggest moments of joy from that season. Another step forward in quality, the one he protagonised in 2019 -2nd in the Vuelta a Burgos; 22nd overall in La Vuelta-, led him into a spot in the highest tier of the sport in the following season.

READY FOR THE BEST. A more-than-respectable time trialist other than a strong climber, Rodríguez’s two first WorldTour seasons have seen him acquiring experience, consistency and brilliance, which make many expect some big things from him in the upcoming years. He rode his first Giro d’Italia in 2020, then went on to offer his arguably best performances during the summer of 2021, with some really good results from May to August: 10th in Andalucía, 2nd atop the Mont Ventoux, a GC podium (3rd) in the Route d’Occitanie and a 6th spot in Ordizia, while supporting winner Luis León Sánchez. A knee injury cut short his third La Vuelta and a promising year, which he hopes to build on, and improve, in 2022, wherever he’s required to go to.
