He started cycling six years ago, in the Peña of his hometown, Fuente Vaqueros, and competing in the first year of cadets, with the Santa Fe Cycling Club. From there, in his first junior year, he went to the Club Ciclista Belizón y Rodríguez, in Cabra, where he spent a season until his arrival at the Fundación Alberto Contador. José Antonio is the first case of round trip to the Foundation, since after a first stay of two years, in his second year under23 signed by Infisport, to stop the following season at Gomur before signing again by the team under23 of Polartec-Kometa. “Although last year I also had other offers, I wanted to go back to the Foundation because I had good memories of the team and I already knew the people. I preferred to go back to another unknown team”, explains José Antonio. 2018 was a key season in his development as a rider and in his aspiration is “to get past professionals doing the best possible this year, getting the best track record I can to keep me up”. Partial victories in the Vuelta a Zamora or the final general of the Challenge Vuelta a Sevilla, obtained with his excellent top speed, have catapulted his jump to the continental set for 2019. Joselillo, as he is known by his team mates, is a difficult rival to beat in small groups. “I’m not a pure sprinter, but I pass the mountain well and in hard races I can play the sprint trump card”, he explains. After completing high school, García has focused on the bicycle, although he has studied Quiromassage and continues to study Italian and English.
