Betancur not guaranteed Vuelta a Espana start

Carlos Betancur is still not certain of a place in AG2R-La Mondiale’s team for the Vuelta a España later this month. Betancur is on the team’s long-list of 11 riders but he could miss out on selection when the team make their final decision after the Tour de l’Ain, which finishes this Saturday. Domenico Pozzovivo, who is racing in France this week, will lead the French squad and is the only confirmed rider on AG2R's Vuelta team.

Born in Ireland to a cycling family and later moved to the Isle of Man, so there was no surprise when I got into the sport. Studied sports journalism at university before going on to do a Masters in sports broadcast. After university I spent three months interning at Eurosport, where I covered the Tour de France. In 2012 I started at Procycling Magazine, before becoming the deputy editor of Procycling Week. I then joined Cyclingnews, in December 2013.
