The Vuelta a Andalucia-Ruta del Sol has confirmed the participation of Mikel Landa. The Spaniard will be leading Movistar in the race.

Landa will be taking over the role that Alejandro Valverde has successfully had in the past, which shows in his five overall victories. During the first race of his season and with his new team, Landa will have the chance to prove himself against his former teammate Chris Froome.

"For us it is a pleasure that Mikel Landa debuts in our Vuelta a Andalucia, a race in which Alejandro Valverde took five victories in the General Classification and he won't be here because he will be at the Tour of Oman," said the Director of the race Joaquín Cuevas.

The team that will support Landa will be formed by Marc Soler, Andrey Amador, Jorge Arcas, Daniele Benatti, Imanol Erviti and Ruben Fernandez.
