Rubén Fernández extends with Movistar

by CyclingTips

Rubén Fernández has extended his current contract with the Movistar team for the next three years. The team sees him as one of the best climbers and future prospects in Spanish cycling.

The 2013 Tour de l’Avenir winner, he had three sixth place overall finishes at the Tour Down Under, Tour of Poland and Vuelta a Burgos.

However, his biggest result was second place on stage three of the Vuelta where he was runner-up atop the tough Mirador de Ízaro.

With team leaders Alejandro Valverde and Nairo Quintana already signed through 2019, Fernández confirms himself as a key support rider in the near future and a GC leader-in-training.
