The Future of Juan Ayuso

UAE talent will lead the National Team together with Carlos Rodríguez (Ineos) in the round in which young talent explodes (from August 13 to 22).


The Tour del Porvenir is the stage in which each season those riders who will be tomorrow the new references of international cycling flourish definitively. This small version of the Grande Boucle for cyclists in the sub23 category, which has been won by riders of the size of Miguel Indurain, Marc Soler, Nairo Quintana, David Gaudu, Miguel Ángel López, Egan Bernal or Tadej Pogacar, will be held from August 13 to 22 and will consist of eight online stages, a team time trial and an inaugural 5-kilometer prologue.

Spain, which in the last decade has managed to prevail in 2015 and 2013 at the hands of Marc Soler and Rubén Fernández respectively, will attend the Tour del Porvenir with a team that is as exciting as it is talented. What is possibly the best generation of young Spanish runners in recent years will come together in France to try to get the yellow. The National Coach, Mikel Zabala, has put together a dream team made up of Juan Ayuso (UAE), Carlos Rodríguez (Ineos), Javier Romo (Astana), Raúl García Pierna (Kern Pharma), Igor Arrieta (Lizarte) and Marc Brusnemos ( Caja Rural-Seguros RGA amateur) .

“Our approach is to try to achieve victory in the general classification. We will present a bicephaly in the leadership of the team, which Carlos Rodríguez and Juan Ayuso will have to share. I think that this circumstance is something very advantageous for us, because in a race of this type you never know what can happen and having two tricks gives us more options and a greater strategic range. Then, in addition, the rest of the runners are great talents and may also have their share of prominence. Romo, Arrieta or García Leg can be in cuts, move and are very good cards for any stage. Finally, Brusienen is a very skilled cyclist, he moves well in the peloton and he can do a very good job protecting his teammates and directing them on the approach to the finish line. In addition, Marc is a runner with a good speed and could also play his tricks ”, commented Mikel Zabala regarding the plan that the Spanish National Team will carry out in France.

The route that this Tour del Porvenir will draw is clearly divided into two parts: a first made up of the first six stages, in which they will face a prologue, a team time trial and several nervous days, with a broken profile and with possible sprint arrivals; and a second half dominated by the mountains, which will be the main protagonist of the 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th stages. Particularly noteworthy are the last three, ending at the Grand Colombier, at Sant Jean d'Arves after ascending the Glandon and at the Col du Petit Saint-Bernard after ascending the Iseran.
