Igor Anton

Rider

Igor Anton is a professional who has been part of the pro peloton for 13 seasons already. Hailing from Galdako, Basque Country, Igor is naturally a good climber just as many riders from the region are. The 34-year-old has enjoyed some great success in the mountains, winning a stage in the Giro d’ Italia and 4 stages of the Vuelta a Espana. In 2015 Igor also pulled off his biggest GC win by claiming the Tour of Austrias title.

While Igor has 12 UCI victories to his name, he also has several prestigious results which include numerous top 10 placings at events like Liege-Bastogne-Liege, La Fleche Wallone and the Vuelta a Espana GC. Having ridden in 19 Grand Tours so far, Igor’s experience will be invaluable to Louis Meintjes during the 2018 season.
