The Movistar Team announced on Friday the signing of two neo-pros, American Matteo Jorgenson and German Juri Hollman.

Jorgenson, a native of Boise, Idaho, raced with Jelly Belly in 2018, but when the team folded, he decided to relocate to Europe and race for the Chambery CCF amateur team. The move paid off with a fourth-place finish overall in the Ronde de l'Isard, a victory in the points classification in the Tour de l'Avenir and a stint as a trainee for the AG2R La Mondiale squad.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
