Team Movistar is shaking up its sport director roster following a tense 2022 season for its elite men’s team.
Xabier Muriel, Yvon Ledanois, and Jürgen Roelandts will join the team’s core group of sport directors for 2023, officials confirmed Wednesday.
Roelandts, the Belgian ex-pro, ended his career with Movistar in 2020, while Ledanois recently left Arkéa-Samsic and rejoins Movistar, where he worked from 2005 to 2012. Muriel moves across from experience with the Caja Rural and Murias teams.
“Cycling’s changed a lot over the years, but one thing that hasn’t changed is my will to always be close to the riders, to give 200 percent for them, and that they feel I am one of them from inside the car,” Ledanois said. “That’s the same from all the performance staff here. Our objective is to give everything, put your heart into it, and help to carry this group as high as possible, where it deserves to be. With this team, we can aspire for new heights.” ���Ⓜ️ #MovistarTeam2023 incorpora a su staff de rendimiento tres nuevos directores deportivos: @xabimu , Yvon Ledanois y @jurgenroelandts . ¡Bienvenidos y gracias por formar parte de esta familia! #RodamosJuntos Three additions to our DS group next year > https://t.co/ggqz48XaKC The news comes as Movistar prepares to move into its first season without Alejandro Valverde in the peloton.
