The 27-year-old Landa, who finished fourth in
this summer's Tour de France and played a key role in Chris
Froome's victory, will race for the Spain-based team in 2018 and
"It's great news for us," said Eusebio Unzue, the Movistar
"Being still a young rider and with everything that he’s shown,
he should be the rider who leads Spanish cycling for the next
few years," he told Cyclingnews.com.
Landa will rival Nairo Quintana and Alejandro Valverde to be
lead rider at Movistar.
