Biography

Champion Andrew Anacona Gomez (given birth to 11 August 1988) is a Colombian professional street cyclist, currently traveling for Movistar Group.

Career

He impressed the group managers after obtaining second host to the 2011 Girobio, a smaller sized version from the Giro d'Italia for younger riders. The group agreed upon him for 2012 and 2013. In Dec 2012, Anacona was wounded in an exercise crash, after he collided using a dog. He experienced a damaged peroneal malleolus and dislocated his ankle joint bone.In the mountainous 2014 Tour of Utah, Anacona helped his leader Chris Horner have the second host to the competition, taking the 3rd step from the podium himself. In the mountaintop surface finish of Stage 9 from the 2014 Vuelta a España, Anacona nearly got the leader's shirt by soloing towards the range for the stage success. He attacked from a breakaway of 31 riders and skipped the top place in the entire classification by only 9 seconds.He was named after cyclists Peter Winnen and Andrew Hampsten, but because of a blunder, his initial name became Champion rather than Winnen.In 2015, Anacona visited Movistar on the 2-year contract. He was called in the beginning list for the 2015 Tour de France.
