Team Sky's Ivan Sosa is set to start his season at the Tour Colombia. The rider will have his first race with a WorldTour team in his home country from the 12th to the 17th of February.

It was an eventful step up to the WorldTour for the Colombian as he was first linked to Trek-Segafredo before deciding for Sky. He will start in the Colombian race along with his fellow countryman Egan Bernal and the four-time Tour de France winner Chris Froome.

"I think it's a team where I can learn a lot," he explained. "There is a high level here - I believe that these are the best riders in the world. So what better than learning from riders as good as them? It’s cool for a young rider like me to learn from these guys, who are already big winners, so it’s a great thing.

"My aim in this first season with Team Sky is to do things well, to train well and if I want to ride a Grand Tour then that is a bigger motivation. I know I have the condition to ride in the key races, so for me that's a big motivation, to train harder every day to achieve the dreams I’ve had for so long."

The rider is excited about making his first appearing in the Colombian 2.1. race. "Of course, the Tour Colombia is exciting because it means competing in Colombia and it's been a long time since I raced there, so it's something that’s really motivating, right?" Sosa explained.

"As a rider, to see your people supporting you every day, telling us, ‘Go on, yes, you can do it!' So it's very cool and it’s something that also gives you a lot of motivation for the season."
