FUN and Team INCA, together in Vuelta de la Juventud 2020

por | Oct 8, 2020 | News

Partnered with French Team INCA, we will participate in the Vuelta de la Juventud on October 28 until November 1, celebrated in the Colombian department of Meta. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this has been an atypical season for all the U-18 schedule, including our team. Therefore, this year we have not been able to compete in any race.

Given to the current social, economic and sports reactivation in the world and in our country, the Colombian Cycling Federation organized for this second semester this competition. We decided to partner with French Team INCA, subsidiary team of World Tour AG2R Team to participate in the most important stage competition of U-23 schedule in Colombia.

The bike riders representing  us at the Vuelta de la Juventud will be Luis Mario Marmolejo, Diomedes Velandia, Nicolás Borras and Sergio Granados. Granados will be participating as an invited rider. Although today they all belong to the Team INCA, Velandia and Borrás were part of the FUN Team.

For Jairo Chaves, CEO of FUN, this is an excellent opportunity to go back to the cycling activity and continue our development of bike riders. «Although our Team is not usually in the Vuelta de la Juventud but this time we will race with Team INCA because we want these young talents to get competitive rhythm and experience before the end of the year” he said.

Jean Jacques Goullieux is the president of Team INCA. «For us, it is a great opportunity to unite the values we share: hard work, ethics and humbleness» he said. «Returning to the competition after these difficulties experienced all over the world due to this pandemic will allow us to follow the training and learning. Bike riders are training and getting ready in France to get there in the best way», said.

One of the bike riders, Diomedes Velandia, is 19 and is from Boyacá: «I am very happy. It is a challenge and a very big responsibility. Additionally, it is a dream to be part of this project and this race. With the team we are very excited and preparing to give the best».

With the attendance at the Vuelta de la Juventud, at the Esteban Chaves Foundation we continue to work to promote cycling and provide opportunities and guide young bike riders towards their dreams.

With Team INCA we have a relationship since 2019. We seek to promote the development of cycling and contribute young talents to become professional bike riders. Every year, members of the FUN cycling team travel to France to complete a sports internship. There, they  live a personal and sports experience unique and that contributes in their life projects.
