The teams set to compete at the 2019 Tour Colombia 2.1 (February 12-17) were presented to the public and the media at the Atanasio Girardot football stadium in downtown Medellin on Sunday.

Loud pop music, mariachi bands and local youth choirs added to the party atmosphere as Colombia welcomed the likes of Team Sky's Chris Froome and Egan Bernal, Movistar's Nairo Quintana and EF Education First's Rigoberto Uran, for whom the loudest cheers were saved for, with chants of "Rigo, Rigo, Rigo" echoing around the stadium.
