Mikel Landa says that his two years riding with Chris Froome and Team Sky have made him "stronger and more confident", as he leaves the British squad for Movistar in 2018.

Landa recently helped Froome win the 2017 Tour de France after he himself won a stage in the Giro d'Italia. After the 2016 and 2017 seasons, Movistar have signed him to lead their Grand Tour team next season.
