“Before, they only entered Russian riders”

José Manuel Diaz confided to our colleagues ofLIKE that his relatives were wondering why he was joining a Russian team. “The most spoken language in the team is Italian”, he replied. “Before, they only entered riders from their country, Russia, but now they are following a different line by signing foreign riders in order to improve quality. We can take the example of Israel Cycling, which is now in WorldTour. . I signed for two years, and what struck me the most was their ambition. When the possibility of joining Gazprom-RusVelo presented itself, everyone told me that they were very professional people, with a strong sponsor who ensures economic stability. “ This last element is an important factor for Diaz, seen what happened to his old team Delko. “At the start of the season you could see that something was wrong, and unfortunately it was confirmed”, added the winner of Tour of Turkey 2021.
