2024 will undoubtedly be a year of redemption for the Ecuadorian cyclist Richard Carapaz, Olympic road champion in Tokyo 2020. The tricolor will try to leave behind his bad luck from last year to, once again, seek the yellow jersey of the Tour de France 2024 .

For this great challenge that lies ahead for the Carchense, his current team, EF Pro Cycling, has decided to build a new uniform that reflects the objectives of the “Locomotive”, which has a podium finish in the three great Tours of road cycling and will have a most colorful selection. At the same time, certain details of his national championship place him as the standard bearer of the North American team.

Everything seems to indicate that Carapaz will participate in the Ecuadorian national championship in the road test and then will be present with his EF Education-EasyPost team in the Tour Colombia 2024. In both competitions he will be accompanied by his countryman, partner and squire, Alexander Cepeda. For the Ecuadorian championships, Jonathan Caicedo, Jhonatan Narváez, Alexander Cepeda, Jefferson Cepeda and Martín López have already confirmed their participation.

The exclusive Rapha kit has been updated with tributes to the life on the road of Richie’s teammates, adding new Cannondale racing equipment and is ready to roll in a bright new color combination.

Rapha designed the new kit in collaboration with the riders, while yellow graphic details highlight the signature pink. Road racing phrases like “UP UP UP” join other hidden gems, adding a playful touch that captures the character of the American team.

“The plan is to have a single organization. A team. That is what we are establishing at the moment here in Girona: it is not so much about adding one team to another, but rather about building and expanding the EF Pro Cycling organization,” said Esra Tromp, general manager of EF Education-Cannondale.
