As if Richard Carapaz leaving the team was not enough, Andrey Amador has decided to also call it quits on his current team and join EF Education-EasyPost effective from the season 2023. Amador previously raced alongside Carapaz for the team Movistar. They both switched to Ineos in 2020.

Andrey joined the professional league in 2009 at the team Movistar. The biggest success of his career has been at  Giro d’Italia where he took the big win in 2012, followed by the fourth position overall in 2015. 2016 came with no less good news for him, as he wore the maglia rosa, even if only for a day, it symbolizes great success.

Andrey’s love for the Giro is clearly showing in his words:

The Giro is a big thing for me, and I love it

Joining his new team, he showed dedication and the potential level of support he brings to the table. His statement read:

I define myself as a rider who can give support in the best and worst moments,If I have something, then I give it all and I give my best for the team. I sacrifice myself. Not only that, but I will aim for everything that I can reach.

Andrey provided his team leader Carapaz with unimaginable support at the Giro of 2019. Carapaz took the big one and later switched teams, from Movistar to Ineos and Andrey followed suit.  Jonathan Vaughters, the  EF Education-EasyPost manager praised Andrey saying:

Amador is an anchor rider, meaning he anchors the team in terms of getting the hard work done.He is incredibly experienced. He has been top-ten in multiple grand tours. He is a very capable rider with a big engine in this part of his career. So what he is bringing to us is experience

The team EF Education-EasyPost confirmed the news of Carapaz’s switch on Friday, 19th August. He has been signed for a term of 3 years.
