Ecuadorian cyclists who have contracts with foreign clubs live key days waiting for the training agenda and international competitions for 2021, said Oswaldo Hidalgo, president of the Ecuadorian Cycling Federation (FEC) on Tuesday.
“These days are key for our cyclists because they are waiting for the agenda or plan for training and international competitions for 2021 with their clubs abroad,” Hidalgo told Efe.
The manager asserted that while this is happening with the local cycling figures, another group seeks to consolidate and others to break into internationally, so they are on the hunt for some competition abroad for the next few days.
“Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Return to San Juan, in Argentina, between January 24 and 31, for which we have a selection full of young people who have excelled locally and internationally, “he added.
Among the cyclists who are pending the training and competition plan is Richard Carapaz, from the English club Ineos.
“We remember that in 2020 Richard (Carapaz) made a successful debut in the Tour of Francia and also stood out being second in the Return to Spain, so it will be important for him to know in which competitions he will reappear in his second year with Ineos, “he said.
Carapaz made the great leap in world cycling winning the Tour of Italy in 2019, which earned him to be linked to the English club.
In addition to Carapaz, his compatriot Jonathan Narvez, who won the twelfth stage of the Giro d’Italia in 2020, is also part of Ineos.
The other Ecuadorian who won a stage, the third, in the 2020 Giro was Jonathan Caicedo, from the US team EF Pro Cycling, whose training and competition plan will establish his sports year.
Alexander Cepeda, who is part of the Italian Androni Giocattoli Sidermec, and his cousin Jefferson Cepeda, from the Spanish Caja Rural-Seguros RGA team, are, among others, the great hope of Ecuadorian cycling for the 2021 competitions, especially in Europe .
