Rigo is currently racing his sixth season with the team. The 33-year-old produced our most successful Tour de France campaign to date when he finished a close second to Chris Froome (Team Sky) at the 2017 Tour de France.
Rigo has won 16 races in his 13 years as a professional, including a stage of the 2013 Giro d’Italia and a stage of the 2017 Tour de France. He has twice finished second overall at the Giro. He earned the silver medal at the 2012 London Olympic Games Road Race.
Rigo sustained a fractured shoulder blade, fractured left collarbone, several broken ribs and a punctured lung when he crashed on stage six of the 2019 Vuelta a España. His injuries ended his season and forced a lengthy period of recovery in Colombia. While his road to recovery was long and hard, Rigo demonstrated his tenacity and drive by making a spectacular comeback at the Tour of Colombia in February of 2020 where the team won the overall team classification before racking up another top ten finish at the Tour de France.
Larger than life, Rigo enjoys celebrity status at home in Colombia — and he embraces it, just like his doppelganger Mick Jagger. His hair, dance moves and quick wit, combined with his fun-loving personality, makes him an obvious fan favorite.
