"There is nothing to worry about, and I am ready to take part in my third Vuelta after I raced it in 2008 and 2011, where I placed 4th on the 10th stage which finished at altitude (Verin - Estacion de Montana Manzaneda).”

Mathias Frank will lead IAM at the Vuelta a Espana.


“I would like to win a stage; that would make me happy," he said.“I have felt good in training. However, it will take me a few days to find the rhythm of competition again. But I am not worried considering the fact that I have been having the right sensations in training.


“I have recovered from my stomach troubles that forced me out of the Tour de France recently. I have trained well and took part in the Clasica San Sebastian in an effort to continue my recovery. There is nothing to worry about, and I am ready to take part in my third Vuelta after I raced it in 2008 and 2011, where I placed 4th on the 10th stage which finished at altitude (Verin - Estacion de Montana Manzaneda).”


Rik Verbrugghe, sports manager for IAM Cycling explained the selection.


“Making the selection for the riders to take to the Vuelta has not proved easy since all our riders have kept their motivation to race straight through to the end of the season. We have favored some youthful riders like Chevrier and Pellaud. Our policy for the Vuelta will be identical as it was for the Tour de France. We will lineup with a very aggressive squad that will have a stage win as the primary objective. Mathias Frank will be the leader for the general classification, but we will not be focusing on a place in the top-10.”


IAM Cycling will be fielding a team where the majority of the riders have never even raced over Spanish roads. Clément Chevrier, Dries Devenyns, Vegard Stake Laengen, Jonas Van Genechten, and Marcel Wyss will all be Vuelta neophytes for this 2016 edition.


Always ready for a laugh, and the guy who keeps the mood bright and light within the team, the 35 year old Vicente Reynes, who comes from Mallorca, will be starting his seventh Vuelta.
