Alejandro Valverde returns this Saturday to Navarra, the home of Movistar Team, to compete for a new edition of the GP Miguel Indurain, one of the last challenges before facing one of his main objectives of each season: the Triptych of the Ardennes. It is a race that he knows perfectly. In fact, he achieved the triumph in 2014 and there he has helped to his teammates to achieve important successes.
The Murcian cyclist will face a day not very different from that of past seasons, with the Navarra municipality of Estella as the epicenter of the race, but with relevant modifications in the final part of the circuit. Instead of finishing at the top of the Basilica of the Puy as in the recent years, the GP Miguel Indurain stretches to the Paseo de la Inmaculada de Estella, adding a new variable to the resolution of the race. As usual, the route include the climbs to Guirguillano, Lezaun or the final ascents to Eraul, Muru and the Alto de Ibarra.
Movistar Team will line up a powerful 'seven', with Alejandro Valverde, Winner Anacona, Marc Soler, Carlos Betancur, Jaime Castrillo, Antonio Pedrero and Andrei Amador.
