The Argentine Cycling Team will be part of the squad of 26 participating teams in the 39th Tour of San Juan 2023 (UCI Pro Series). The national team will have the luxury of having a top-level cyclist as leader.

The Buenos Aires native Maximiliano Richeze (39) announced that he will be part of Argentina in his last Tour of San Juan. The ‘Atomic’ confirmed his presence through his profile on his Instagram.

With Richeze, the team trained by Omar Contreras makes sure they have a very experienced captain on the road. During his time in Europe, the Argentine spent 10 years in UCI World Tour teams (Lampre – Mérida, Quick Step and UAE Emirates).

In recent years, Richeze has obtained excellent results in national and international races in South America. For example:
