The Caja Rural-Seguros RGA presents its commitment to the Baluarte de Pamplona

There are already fourteen years of commitment to grassroots and professional cycling. 21 riders have appeared on stage, with a presentation by Juan Mari Guajardo, to claim their right to run the Tour of Spain, which will have two stages in Navarre in the 2023 edition. “In 2016 we achieved 16 victories and, last year, nine . Those are our credentials. We hope to ride the Vuelta because we think that merits are achieved on the road. In addition, there are riders like Oier Lazkano who went to Movistar or Jonathan Lastra, who has now made the leap to Cofidis. We are a training team but we also compete with what we have”, commented Josemi Fernández.

For the new course, a weight sponsor such as Gsport joins the project. For the professional and the amateur. The Spanish brand will provide both sets of all the necessary garments for the development of their work. This is the fourteenth campaign in charge of the project for Caja Rural and the eleventh for Seguros RGA supporting the cycling team. In addition, Bed4U joins Euskorot and Spiuk as firms that have accompanied Caja Rural-Seguros RGA for at least ten years. The hotel chain accommodates the entire block every time it holds a concentration in Pamplona.

The philosophy of the project is maintained year after year, with the training and development of young talent as its main hallmark, being the team that has promoted the most cyclists to the World Tour in the last decade. The most recent case is that of Jonathan Lastraall an example of ADN Caja Rural-Seguros RGA, since he was formed in the subsidiary and has grown in the professional team for the last seven years. This course adds another three runners from the quarry, such as Abel Balderstone, Joseba López and Mulu Kinfe Hailemichael, thus reaching a total of 126 professional cyclists formed in the green quarry.

A commitment to youth that continues to bear fruit, since in 2022 Caja Rural-Seguros RGA was the best Spanish UCI ProTeam, reaping nine victories, seven of which came from the Venezuelan Orluis Aular. With these wickers, the season will start rolling on January 22 in the Clàssica Comunitat Valenciana, although before that both teams will meet from tomorrow, January 12, to next 21 in Almuñécar (Granada) to prepare for the start of the competition. .

The coming-out has featured posh guests. Miguel Indurain has said that “Every time I go out to train, I always see people from the Caja Rural on the roads. I think that the true merit is in the motivation to go out every day to do kilometers. It does not matter if it is cold, raining or snowing. One day and another, one day and another. Then, the competition thing, it comes alone. I ask you for motivation and effort, go out and train no matter what”. has also been present Eusebio Unzué, Movistar Manager. “Yesterday I caught cold at the presentation of La Vuelta in Barcelona and I have lost my voice ”, he commented to the journalists present. Another referent, Mikel Snow, who has retired this year. “I started here as an amateur and have now retired as a professional. I am very happy to be here to support this project”, he pointed out. But there have also been more statements. Pascual Momparlernational coach, recalled that “Now we have two wonderful events that we hope will leave their mark: the Cyclocross World Cup in Benidorm and the Clásica de Jaén with the sterrato as the protagonist”.

Juan Manuel Hernandez (Caja Rural-Seguros RGA manager): “We continue for another year faithful to our values, betting on training from the base. Undoubtedly, our subsidiary is the key to this project and with the arrival of Aritz Bagüés to the Sports Management we hope to take another step in the development of our cyclists. In the professional we have a young and balanced team, with eleven of the twenty-one cyclists coming from the subsidiary. In addition, we have reinforced ourselves with fast men who help us in the hunt for UCI points, a classification that is more important every year and that we must keep in mind ”, has commented.
