Carlos Rodríguez takes a giant step forward at Ineos

At the age of 20, the young Granada-born cyclist was one of the team's key pieces on the climb to Mont Ventoux before Ineos achieved the double with Sosa and Bernal.


Carlos Rodríguez continues to make great strides in his progression in the professional peloton. At just 20 years of age, the young Granada-born cyclist has already proven his worth in a whole World Tour team like Ineos after making his professional debut last season.

Rodríguez was one of the key pieces of the Ineos in the Tour de La Provence, where the British team prevailed in the general with Iván Ramiro Sosa and who also placed Egan Bernal on the podium, largely thanks to the great performance of the team on Mont Ventoux.

And it is that, after the attack by Harold Tejada, Eddie Dunbar, Laurens de Plus and Carlos Rodríguez took the reins of the peloton on the first ramps of Mont Ventoux on the way to Chalet Reynard to make the great selection in the peloton, especially with the relay de Rodríguez, before Sosa and Bernal achieved a historic double at the top.

Rodríguez's performance has also been valued by Ineos-Grenadiers through their social networks with this message. "For our motivation on Monday, we don't have to go beyond the great performance of the team in La Provenza. And what about Carlos Rodríguez! What a career he did at Ventoux! Not bad at 20 years old." A few accolades to which the team from the Alberto Contador Foundation, where the Granada-born was forged, also added. "Congratulations Carlos Rodríguez for the Grand Tour de la Provence that you have done. Very proud of you!". On the slopes of Mont Ventoux, Carlos Rodríguez has shown that potential that he already demonstrated in the junior category and that can give Ineos many joys while continuing to grow in the peloton.
