“In my father’s family there has always been a certain tradition of cycling. My father, in fact, ran until he was twenty or twenty-one years old. It was my father’s director in those years who gave my older brother, Ismael, the creeps. He used to run and, of course, you see him come and go, he catches your eye and you want to try it out, at least. I was five years old when I started at the school in Santilla de Mar. Then I continued with the Isidoro San Justo as a cadet and in youth…”, remembers Álvaro about his cycling origins. Ismael, his brother, ran until the third year in the under 23 category. Álvaro, who is facing his fourth year in the category in 2021, when the time came for him to jump from the junior category, was very much attracted by the idea of trying out the Basque and Navarre calendars. And in them, he tried his hand at the Telco’m for two seasons. “For the first year, I didn’t want a team that was too far from home. This option came up, among others, and I thought it was very good, especially because in the Lehendakari Tournament you can adapt well to the category, quickly, without noticing much the question of mileage. And also with all the passion there is in the Basque Country. I have competed in Cup races and stage tours, but above all I have made the Basque calendar. And I have enjoyed it very much”, he added. Looking ahead to 2021, García arrives with the ambition of taking a leap forward. Last season he competed with the Caja Rural-Seguros RGA.
