One of the three neo-pros to come across from the Klein Constantia team at the start of 2017, Enric Mas proved why he has been touted by many as the next big thing in Spanish cycling, with a couple of audacious displays at the Vuelta a España – his maiden Grand Tour – which he animated from the break several times, including on the brutal and mythical Alto de l’Angliru, one of cycling’s toughest climbs.
In his own words, “2017 was a season during which my primary goal was to learn the trade and be there for the team every time they needed my help, a season to which I can look back with pride and a big smile on my face”, said Enric, who in 2018 will look to gain even more World Tour experience and develop his talent.
