Carapaz misses out on Ecuador's road cycling spot at Paris Games

Wednesday, 29 May 2024 | AP | Quito (Ecuador)

Richard Carapaz will not be at the Paris Olympics to defend his road cycling title.

Ecuador's only representative at the Olympics in the road cycling race and individual time trial will be Jhonatan Narváez, the national cycling federation said in a statement on Monday.

Carapaz said on his social media he wished "the best of luck to Jhonatan," and added he will keep reaching for new goals. The two cyclists had a tough battle for Ecuador's spot in Paris.

Carapaz was the first Ecuadorian to win a grand tour, the 2019 Giro d'Italia. He also made the podium at the Tour de France and Spanish Vuelta, but hasn't finished any grand tour since 2022.
