Israel – Premier Tech Academy has secured one of the most promising young Spanish talents as the national junior road race champion, Álvaro García, will join the team in 2024 on a two-year deal.

“I’m really looking forward to joining the team next year”, García explains. “I picked Israel – Premier Tech Academy because I believe the structure is really good and that it’s a place where I can grow and improve as a rider and get the opportunity to ride a good calendar. In the future, I see myself as a complete rider but first and foremost as a climber.”

The 18-year-old Spaniard has had an impressive season with six victories this year, while also finishing fourth overall in Vuelta a Madrid U23 and taking bronze in the Spanish junior time trial championships.

“Álvaro is a strong rider and we are really happy to have signed him”, IPT Academy manager Jens Blatter tells. “He’s already a good climber and he can also time trial, so he has everything it takes to become a good GC rider. With us, he will be able to have the time he needs to develop into a strong professional rider for the future”.
