Former Flèche Wallonne winner Dani Moreno moves from Katusha to Movistar

by CyclingTips


Two years after winning the Flèche Wallonne Classic and one month after he placed ninth overall in the Vuelta a España, Dani Moreno is moving from Katusha to the Movistar team.

The Spaniard had an impressive season this year, showing he is still a strong rider at 34 years of age. He won a stage of the Vuelta a Burgos, recently placed second in the Giro di Lombardia and was also fourth in the Clásica de San Sebastián and fifth in Flèche Wallonne.

He previously raced for Movistar’s predecessor, the Caisse d’Epargne team, between 2008 and 2009, prior to spending a year with Omega Pharma-Lotto and then joining Katusha in 2011.

“Winner of the Flèche Wallonne (2013), of three stages in the Vuelta a España -which has seen him finishing in fifth (2012), ninth (twice, in 2011 and 2015) and tenth (2013) overall-, while also victor in races like Burgos, Dauphiné or Andalucía, Moreno has snatched big results in almost every terrain,” said the Movistar team in announcing the signature.
