Lucas Guillermo Crespo from La Rioja is one of the five new faces joining the Contador Foundation for 2021 and if he is competing by bike it is thanks to the initiative of the Vuelta Junior Cofidis. On the occasion of a stage of the Vuelta a España 2013 in Tarazona, Guillermo Crespo took part and finished first in that experience. An experience on the podium that was repeated two years later, in 2015, when the caravan returned, also the Junior Tour, and the cyclist finished second. That second place encouraged Lucas to experiment with road cycling, for which he was helped by the Club Ciclista Turiaso de Tarazona. They lent him a bicycle for the last race on the calendar of the category, his first experience in competition, and he managed to finish. For the Día de los Reyes, their Majesties gave him a bicycle of his own. And from there he started with the Club Ciclista Turiaso, as a second year fry and even as a first year child. The Ermitagaña Cycling Club of Pamplona was his next club for the last three seasons. Except in his first year as a cadet, the rest of the seasons he has always been successful. “I like all the races, but if I could highlight a few, they would be the classics. I find the Tour de France incredible,” he explains.
