The Movistar Team is the best cycling team in the World. In the last three years (2013-2015) they became UCI World Champions.
Established in 1980, they are the oldest professional team in the competition and this year celebrates their 37th anniversary with very competitive riders, led by Nairo Quintana and Alejandro Valverde.
