BIOGRAPHY

Joaquim Rodriguz is a professional road cyclist who hails from Barcelona, Spain.  A member of Russian Team Katusha, Rodriguez has quietly built one of the most impressive resumes in cycling today.  The Spaniard, a smaller rider, is known for his tenacity and will to keep grinding in some of the toughest races on the planet.

Known in the cycling world as “Purito” (little cigar), Rodriguez received his nickname during an early season training camp with a former team.  While enduring a tough climb, he passed many of his teammates making a hand gesture appearing to be smoking a cigar, downplaying the difficulty of the climb and the effort he was putting out. His teammates made him smoke a real cigar as a hazing ritual later in the evening, and the nickname remains intact today.

Racing professionally since 2001, Purito has secured the number one spot in the UCI’s World Rankings three times (2010, 2012, 2013).  While this is a very impressive accomplishment, Rodriguez has made it clear that he won’t be satisfied until the World Championship stripes are his.

On his way to securing those three number one rankings, Rodriguez has secured podium spots at all three of the Grand Tours (Tour de France, Vuelta a Espana, Giro d’Italia) and has won stages in each as well.  Combine those accomplishments with wins at La Flèche Wallonne and Il Lombardia and you’re talking about a pretty impressive cycling career.  Make no mistake however, Rodriguez is not finished yet.
