Orbea Factory Team says goodbye to almost all team members and announces major changes
It's the end of the year and teams have been announcing new signings or creating expectation about their next changes for weeks. And the Orbea Factory Team seems to be one of those who will have one of the biggest renewals of the season. At the moment the team has said goodbye to almost all its members and has just announced that a "new era" is coming.
Orbea Factory Team announces a "new era" for the team
In 2017, Orbea created a very particular factory team composed of professional and semi-professional cyclists in charge of giving visibility to the brand, representing its values and competing with the brand's bikes in races of all kinds around the world, from mountain bike stage races, to cyclotourism marches or ultra-distance gravel races.
In 2022, the Orbea Factory Team was composed of the Spanish Sandrá Jorda, Purito Rodríguez and Ibon Zugasti, the Russian Anton Sintov, the French Arnaud Jouffroy and the Italian Virginia Cancellieri. The brand has just said goodbye to all of them, except Ibon Zugasti and Arnaud Jouffroy, in a special statement and on their social networks.
Along with this move, which occurred a few days ago, Orbea has announced important news that will be announced in the coming weeks. So it is expected that the team will change completely or specialize in some way. In any case we can only wait and keep an eye on the team's social networks.
