Weeks after announcing the launch of its women’s team for 2018, Movistar has announced a roster of eight riders lined up for the 2018 season.

Of these signees are 33-year-old Polish rider Malgorzata Jasinska, transferring from Cylance Pro Cycling, and Aude Biannic, a French rider transferring from FDJ. With nine years in the pro peloton, Jasinska brings experience, while Biannic, 26, has had top-10 finishes in both World Championship and Olympic events.

Jorge Sanz will lead the team in its inaugural year. Negotiations are still in process with the team hoping to fill three more spots in the coming weeks.

The current roster is Mavi García, Lourdes Oyarbide, Lorena Llamas, Eider Merino, Alicia González, Alba Teruel, Malgorzata Jasinska, Aude Biannic.
