Androni Giocattoli-Sidermec's latest signing is a former Olympic cross-country skier, who they have likened to their former rider and 2019 Tour de France winner Egan Bernal after the Spaniard produced some impressive test lab numbers.

Martí Vigo del Arco will join the Italian ProTeam for the 2021 season, having only taken up cycling this year. Previously, he was a skier who competed for Spain at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.
