Marc Brustenga is one of the most exciting talents emerging out of Spain. He’s a versatile rider who can handle short climbs, sprint, or go it alone. He’s a savvy rider able to read races and is technically sound - traits that should come in handy as he builds towards races like the northern Classics or helping in chaotic sprint finishes. Marc cut his teeth in the World Tour peloton in 2022, enjoying the chance to ride his home race: Volta a Catalunya.
