Mavi García will join Liv Racing Xstra on January 1st. With the arrival of the Spanish road and time trial champion, the Dutch UCI Women’s WorldTeam welcomes one of the peloton’s strongest GC riders. Mavi García has signed a two-year contract.
“When I sat down with Giorgia Bronzini and team manager Eric van den Boom, it immediately felt very good and comfortable. Those conversations gave me confidence. I am convinced that together we can create something beautiful and that there is room to grow. In the meantime, I have been working at the highest level for many years. In this phase I need tranquility, understanding and professionalism. Liv Racing Xstra can offer me a lot in all these areas. All decisions I have made in my career have been well-considered and have always brought positive change. It will be no different with this move”, said Mavi García.
“Liv Racing Xstra is a stable team with a rich history in cycling. Looking at the riders, I see a lot of potential, in all areas. For next year I think it is most important that we operate as a team. That we are one tight unit and fight in the races that are important. In addition, I want to experience the pleasure. That is where success begins.”
With the arrival of the Spanish top rider, Liv Racing Xstra has the desired GC rider. That position was vacant for the moment. Team manager and owner Eric van den Boom: “We wanted to reinforce ourselves with a strong rider who is able to achieve success in stage races as well as in tough one day races. Mavi García fits that profile perfectly. She also brings the necessary experience that our talented youngsters can really use. We can’t wait to get started on this cooperation and look forward to seeing where it takes us.”
