Héctor Sáez (Caudete, 1993) returns to the team where he took his first steps as a professional cyclist two seasons after his first stage in this category. The Spanish was part of the Professional-Continental roster of the green formation for two and a half years, beginning in the middle of the 2015 season. He arrived from the elite and under 23 feeder team.
Sáez returns to Caja Rural-Seguros RGA after completing two seasons in Euskadi-Murias. He has shown his combativeness in races such as the recent Vuelta a España, where he tried to win with a brave break in Los Machucos stage. Shortly before he had achieved an important victory in the sixth stage of Volta a Portugal.
Héctor Sáez: I am very happy to return to the team that gave me the opportunity to be a professional cyclist. I am still the same who debuted in 2015 with Caja Rural-Seguros RGA, but I arrive with more maturity. Three Vueltas a España let you know yourself better and face the competitions with more ambition. In addition, the victory in Portugal has helped me to confirm that I am able to fight for this kind of goals and also face the final part of the races more quiet. The target in 2020 will be to add wins to the team and help other teammates to get them too. Hopefully it will be a beautiful year for the whole team.
The Spanish becomes the third confirmed signing of Caja Rural-Seguros RGA for the 2020 season after the announcements of the Venezuelan sprinter Orluis Aular and the Colombian climber Alejandro Osorio.
