Iván Cortina points to Movistar

The Spaniard, who as reported by AS will leave Bahrain at the end of this season, has great options to join the Spanish team.


Iván García Cortina, as AS already announced, will not continue at Bahrain-Mérida. After four years, the Asturian, who is fulfilling his contract, will not renew and one of the main candidates to take over his services is Movistar. The Spanish clasicomano, a figure that has few similar runners on the national scene, has several offers, but August points to a more definitive one to know his destination.

Movistar, which in 2020 made a radical change and opted for a young squad, with Valverde, Soler and Mas as leaders, would thus have a runner with a great taste for one-day tests and one-week races . Throughout his career, the 24-year-old Cortina has two stage victories to his name, both in the World Tour category: in the Tour of California last year and in Paris-Nice this season.

It would be the Asturian's first professional experience, settling in Andorra, in a Spanish team, which already in their teens left for Belgium to join the ranks of the current Deceuninck-Quick Step subsidiary. His big dream, as he has stressed on several occasions, is to win the Paris-Roubaix, something that no Spaniard has ever achieved.
