As in the 2018 and 2019 editions, the BUFF® SCOTT MTB TEAM members will be looking to reach the podium again on May 17th. Throughout this season, they have already proven that competing in couple teams they can be among the best.
The first of the two couple teams that will be on the start line in Jaén is the one formed by the XCM Champion of the Netherlands, Hans Becking and the Portuguese José Dias. Newcomers to this line-up, both the Dutchman and the Portuguese have shown in these previous weeks that they are in great shape, with good results in other stage races they have already competed in. In addition to knowing each other perfectly, as they also shared their previous team, both Becking and Días have extensive experience in this discipline. Both come from the XCO discipline, but in recent years they have adapted perfectly to this stage discipline.
Finally, it should be noted that Becking already knows what it is to reach to the top of our podium, as he won two stages in the 2019 edition. Edition in which he finally finished fifth.
In that same edition, José Maria Sánchez was fourth. The Andalusian will also be on the starting line of this Andalucia Bike Race by GARMIN together with Enrique Morcillo from Ibiza. The Balearic rider also knows what it's like to climb the podium in our race, as in 2018 he achieved a more than creditable second place overall.
Becking, Dias, Morcillo and Sánchez. Four names ready to sound very strong in Andalucía Bike Race by GARMIN.
