The U-23 Spanish national time trial champion Jaime Castrillo has confirmed his signing with Movistar. The Spaniard is the fourth rider to transfer to the team ahead of the 2018 season.

The 21-year-old makes the leap to professional cycling despite having one year left in his category and just after finishing the U-23 World Championships in Bergen, Norway, where he took the 13th spot of the Individual Time trial standings. At the last European championships, Castrillo finished in 20th position of the same event.

The rider is 1.86 metres tall and weighs 65 kilos, which make him excellent for his specialism. He has already been national champion in the junior category and has made a name for himself in the amateur peloton because of his regular shape and his versatility on several terrains.

Castrillo moves from team Lizarte, from where other riders like Richard Carapaz, Marc Soler, Antonio Pedrero and Dayer Quintana have made the change to professional cycling at Movistar as well.
