Julian Cardona's Bio
Julian Cardona joined EF Education First–Drapac p/b Cannondale on recommendation from Tour de France runner-up Rigoberto Uran. The young Colombian hails from Rigo’s hometown, outside of Medellin, where he lives, quite literally, on the side of a mountain. Asked to provide us with an address, he was only able to provide GPS coordinates.
Team boss Jonathan Vaughters has said: “Julian’s a quiet kid. We don’t know him all that well yet, but Rigo assures us he’ll be one of the Colombian greats. We look forward to being a part of his story as it unfolds.”
