The brothers raced together at Movistar before Ion joined Bahrain in their debut season last year, and Gorka followed across at the start of this year.
Gorka, 30, has had a strong year, becoming Spanish national champion as well as finishing on the podium of Paris-Nice and the Tour of Oman. Ion, 29, finished third at the Vuelta al País Vasco but his performances have been more low-key than his debut season at Bahrain, or than his final years with Movistar. In fact, following his glittering 2016 campaign for Movistar, he hasn’t won a race for Bahrain.
