The new Spanish team Kern Pharma joined MPCC on 20th December 2019. It becomes the 10st Continental Pro Team to join the movement.

Team Kern Pharma is the evolution of amateur team Lizarte, which grabbed 25 wins on Spanish races this year. Its line-up for 2020 will include twelve riders aged 23 or less, including Jon Agirre, 7th on the Col de la Loze stage and winner of the KOM Classification on the Tour de l’Avenir 2019.

Here is what Juan José Oroz, team manager, has to say on the process of joining MPCC :

« At the first meeting of our team, we considered the philosophy of the movement and invited the riders and the staff to browse the MPCC’s website. It seems logical and ethical to join the movement in order to protect the health of the riders, as well as the image of cycling and our partners. “
