An Olympic Silver Medalist (2012 Road Race), Uran has twice stood on the podium of the Giro d’Italia with two second overall finishes as well as stage wins (2013 and 2014). In 2012, Uran won the white jersey for best young rider at the Giro and finished seventh overall. He is the 2015 Colombian National Time Trial Champion, and finished third overall in the 2015 Tirreno-Adriatico.

Jonathan Vaughters, CEO of Slipstream Sports and Cannondale-Garmin Pro Cycling, said: “Rigo is a leader not just for his excellent skills on the road, but for his charisma. He brings style and passion to racing and he will be a huge asset to the team. Rigo has one more step to climb in the Giro and I will put my heart into helping make that happen. We are very excited to add him to our 2016 line up.”
