Davide Appollonio will ride for Movistar in 2011. Biciciclismo reports that Appollonio has signed a three-year contract with the Spanish squad.

The Italian turned professional with Cervélo TestTeam this year and obtained some impressive results. He took a stage win at the Tour du Limousin and second place finishes at the GP Fourmies and the Tour de Vendée.

With Cervélo TestTeam disbanding at the end of the season, Movistar appear to have moved swiftly to secure Appollonio’s services. According to Biciciclismo, manager Eusebio Unzue has high hopes that the 21-year-old will develop into a classics contender at the team.
