Unipublic, the organizers of the most important cycling event in Spain, announced on Tuesday its four wild card teams that will participate at La Vuelta. Among them is once again Caja Rural-Seguros RGA, which will take part in its eighth consecutive edition of the Spanish grand round.
Just like every season, our team will try to return this confidence on the roads, showing its best performance in a first level race. La Vuelta 2019 will begin next August 24th with a team time trial in Torrevieja (Alicante) and will conclude in Madrid on September 15th. Furthermore, nine mountain stages and some finals marked in red for Caja Rural-Seguros RGA as those of Urdax-Dantxarinea or Bilbao on September 4th and 5th.
Juan Manuel Hernández (manager): This is the eighth consecutive participation of Caja Rural-Seguros RGA in La Vuelta. It may seem habitual, but it means big news full of joy for the whole team every year. This race gifted us many of the best memories harvested during ten years in the professional level and, therefore, we keep the illusion of creating new ones.
We are very grateful to Unipublic for the opportunity to return to La Vuelta, the main target of the year every season. Although to the date we have had bad luck with injuries, we keep working hard so that everyone recovers 100%. We will have eight riders to fight on all fronts, in the mountain stages and also in the sprints, where we are stronger this year. Of course, we will give new opportunities to our young cyclists so that they can measure themselves to the best riders of the world. In these seasons we have accumulated very good moments and we will return to La Vuelta with the maximum enthusiasm to relive them.
