A blog dedicated to my own personal favourite cycling team, the predominantly Spanish team of Movistar!

Please feel free to submit and contribute or ask, I'm just a girl with a passion for cycling and a bias for this team since the Illes-Balears days when I first discovered cycling!

Rojas says he was stunned when a motorcycle approached him and told him his tour was over:- “I could not believe it, so I ignored him and kept going. I was in a super comfortable situation, because for the last forty or so kilometres, had done nothing to justify my dismissal and so I decided to finish up the climb and complete the stage.”

In his nine seasons as a professional rider from Murcia, this is the first time he has been kicked out of a race. “It hurts, because I’ve always had a sporting and professional behaviour. Because this season I had to come back from two crashes and recovering took a lot more effort to get ready for tour conditions. Being expelled three days before the end for ‘the benefit of slipstreaming cars going downhill’, I honestly think it’s an injustice.

"

JJ Rojas speaks out about his expulsion from the Tour having returned home.

Knowing that they accused him of drafting the cars going downhill, it’s sounding a bit more ridiculous. He’s a very capable descender and even the average rider would reach speeds whereby they are able to keep up with a car on the way down, if not the car getting in the way. The cars are just there and don’t really have anywhere to go, not to mention he was no longer at the front trying to work for AV, nor was he trying to get back there. So you wonder why they really felt this way.

I do love the image of a race official telling him and asking him to stop and him just riding off and finishing the stage. So sorry it ended this way for him.

Congratulations to Gorka Izagirre who today won the  91st Prueba Villafranca - Clásica de Ordizia, pipping former team-mate Luis Leon Sanchez and actual team-mate Jose Herreda to the win! (Brother Jon currently with Movistar in the TdF looked all smiles at the end when he found out)
“This victory is a tribute to the memory of my friend Urtzi Gurrutxaga, a football player who passed away this year. I’ll always keep him in my heart.”
