Ruben Guerreiro has joined EF Education First on a two-year deal after Katusha-Alpecin decided to end their time in the sport at the end of 2019. 

Katusha-Alpecin’s license at WorldTour level has been taken over by Israel Cycling Academy for 2020, but a number of Katusha’s riders are still without futures. However, after a successful Vuelta a España that yielded two top-five performances and 17th overall, the 25-year-old rider from Portugal was rewarded with a contract at the American squad.

Before his lone year at Katusha-Alpecin, Guerreiro spent two years at Trek-Segafredo and a further two years at the U23 team Hagens Berman Axeon. For Guerreiro the move to EF Education First feels like a  return home.
