Sergio Samitier

A MAN FOR ALL TERRAINS. Sergio Samitier is even more of an allrounder than one could extract from just looking at his results, and his breakaway appearances, throughout his first two pro seasons. He’s a really strong climber, but also a very decent time trialist, and will join as a Blue a good friend and ‘neighbor’ who came into this project showing the same good signs: Jorge Arcas. The two make for the 50% of cycling pros from the Huesca province, the list completed by Fernando Barceló (Cofidis) and Jaime Castrillo (Kern Pharma).

‘MURIAS SPIRIT’. Always leaving their mark, seeking for the maximum performance and leaving leaving a stone unturned. Those are some of the values the now-defunct Murias squad always pursued, a character ‘Sami’ has shown in his early pro stage. In 2019, some of those efforts were visible with good results: he won the KOM jersey at the Tour of the Alps, finished 12th overall in the Vuelta a Burgos and joined several breakaways in the Vuelta a España, his first-ever Grand Tour, ending up in 3rd in the Mountain classification.

ONE OF THE BEST TALENTS. His last two amateur seasons, as part of the Equipo Lizarte, were prodigious. More than a dozen victories in 2016 and 2017 were obtained by Sergio, including top-ranked races such as the Santikutz Klasika -from the Spanish Racing Series, which he got the best U23 rider jersey from before turning pro-, the Vuelta al Bidasoa or the Subida a Gorla, as well as a 2nd place in the Memorial Valenciaga and a silver medal in the Spanish ITT Championships. Sound results which earned him a place in the pro peloton from the biggest development team in our country, which has also seen Elosegui, Carretero, Pedrero and Soler taking the leap towards the top tier after wearing the Navarra-based team’s pink jerseys.
