Team INEOS (United Kingdom) - Press Release: Team INEOS can confirm the signing of Andrey Amador on a three-year deal.
Amador, 33, has long been admired by the Team and is renowned as one of the sport’s outstanding riders. The Costa Rican is set to make his Team INEOS debut at the UAE Tour.
A consummate professional and incredible teammate, Amador has a track record of supporting the best riders in the world while achieving excellent results of his own. Previously a part of two Grand Tour winning lineups – including Richard Carapaz’s 2019 Giro d’Italia win – Amador also has a Giro stage win to his name, and finished fourth in the Italian Grand Tour in 2015.
He arrives after spending the first 11 years of his professional career with the Movistar setup.
Andrey said: “Who wouldn’t be excited to sign with Team INEOS? I’m very happy to be part of this great Team. I have spent all of my sporting career with Movistar and I owe them a lot – but I felt now is the right time in my career to seek some new motivations. This is a new challenge and I will give everything I have for this Team.
