Meanwhile, Carlos Rodriguez, of the Polartec-Kometa junior team, finished 6th in Paris-Roubaix Espoirs.

The team has been invited to Tour de l'Ain (2.1) at the end of May, where Alberto will be guest of honor


Carlos Rodriguez was in the U19 (junior race, not espoirs), but a very nice race by him, he was also good in GW 2 weeks ago (14th) + did very well in some Spanish races where he basically was best 1st year junior in all races. From what I have seen of him in the u17 category I think he is a very versatile rider, but this is impressive as a 1st year junior from Spain (they dont normally perform that well in U19 cat) and as I think Rodriguez is suited much better to different races. Guess he also made his decision as he was doing Road Racing, BMX and Sailing at a high level last year.

You're right I typed that without thinking :p For such a young rider his performances have been amazing.
I am wondering if he will ride for a Belgian team next year, if I recall correctly there was some sort of 'exchange program' between the Fundacion Contador team and some Belgian youth teams a couple years ago which saw some Spanish riders race (part of) a season in Belgium.

It was with Tieltse Rennerclub, but I dont think they still do that, though I am not sure.

From June 1st, Juan Pedro Lopez will join the continental team after an impressive start of the season in the U23 ranks.

And in the junior ranks, Carlos Rodriguez won stage 2b of the Trophée Centre Morbihan. He might just be the most exciting prospect of all 3 teams. This is his first year at junior level and his results are pretty amazing https://www.procyclingstats.com/rider/carlos-rodriguez-cano

John Stiven Ramírez, a former mountain biker, will join the U23 team. Another Colombian for Bert.

I guess with Juanpe Lopez moving up to the continental team, there is a free spot available.
I don't know anything about him, I'll have to read a bit :) there is some info here http://sub23.fundacioncontadorteam.com/el-colombiano-john-stiven-ramirez-munoz-a-prueba-con-el-polartec-kometa-sub23/

I think it's cool they are also giving foreigners a chance in the junior and U23 teams

Jhon Gutiérrez, one of the sponsors of Fundacion has interests in Colombia, so it is likely we'll see more in the team in the future. I like it.
