Marc Soler joins Movistar Team
Logotipo_de_Movistar_svg Catalan youngster (1993) set to bring Blues courage and all-round talent after becoming Spanish amateur calendar’s biggest sensation this season.

Eusebio Unzué has started outlining the Movistar Team’s roster in what will be the squad’s 36th season in cycling’s top tier. Catalan rider Marc Soler (Vilanova i la Geltrú, Barcelona – 20 years old) will be part of the telephone squad in 2015 after excellent progression in his three-year under-23 stage in the ranks of team Lizarte, where he has turned into one of the most promising youngsters of Spanish cycling.

Capable of excelling in all terrains -a great climber and a good time-triallist, as shown by his bronze medal in the U23 Spanish national championships in Ponferrada back in June-, Soler has claimed six victories in 2014, some of those in prestigious races such as the Vuelta al Bidasoa and most of them -U23 Basque races in Estella, Soraluze and Ereño, plus a stage victory in the amateur Vuelta a Zamora- claimed after long solo breakaways, a proof of the potential in the legs of the Movistar Team’s first signing, looking to build as strong of a block in the long term as in the present.
