The Movistar Team is the longest-running, most successful squad in pro cycling’s top tier, the UCI WorldTour, which gathers together the 18 most prestigious teams on the planet.
In 2018, the Blues will fulfil their 39th consecutive season in activity, with 35 athletes that include 25 riders in the men’s team and a 10-strong, brand-new women’s team. Qualified professionals in support of those on the bikes complete an organisation employing more than 70 people. Alejandro Valverde, Nairo Quintana and Mikel Landa will be the Movistar Team’s leaders this year.
Through its four-decade history, the team has known only five title sponsors: Reynolds (aluminum, 1980-89), Banesto (bank, 1990-2003), Illes Balears (tourism authority, 2004-05), Caisse d’Épargne (savings bank, 2006-10) and Telefónica (telecom, 2011-present). The squad is managed by the Abarca Sports society, based in Egüés, Navarra (Spain).
Together with nearly 900 victories, the organisation has achieved six yearly titles as the best team in the world in 1992, 2008 and – under Telefónica’s sponsorship – 2013 to 2016 consecutively.
