After the withdrawal of José Manuel Fuente and Luis Ocaña, Spanish cycling began what was called the desert crossing. No one stood out or put emotion on the road, besides going unnoticed in the great international rounds. With the arrival of Ángel Arroyo to professionalism back in 1979, the fans woke up from his lethargy and began to see in him the idol that was needed in Spanish cycling. Alberto Fernández, Marino Lejarreta, Julián Gorospe and Perico Delgado appeared next to Arroyo.
As head of the Reynolds team he participated in the 1983 Tour. It was the team’s debut and also his and Perico Delgado’s. The team paid the innocent because Angel was able to win the French round. The winner was another debutante, a Fignon that year was beatable. The fact is that Arroyo in the chrono of Puy de Dome surpassed him in almost three minutes and the Frenchman in the last time trial stage only surpassed him in thirty seconds. In the end Ángel Arroyo climbed to the Paris podium as second place.
Basque professional cyclist retired between 1998 and 2017, he played for the teams Euskaltel, Astana, Radio Shack and Trek. He finished 5 times in the top 10 of the Tour de France .
He will participate in the talk about classic cycling on Saturday september 26 and in La Marxa on Sunday 27.
