Juan Ayuso (UAE Team Emirates) is a highly-touted climber who looks set to be a general classification contender for many years to come.

Ayuso is Spanish but his upbringing saw him grow up predominantly in the United States, before returning to Spain where Ayuso was able to continue his cycling development in Europe. In Spain, Ayuso quickly gained recognition and by his final junior season he was seen as the next Spanish hope for Grand Tour victories. As a U23, Ayuso only added fuel to that fire with a dominating performance at the Baby Giro.

In 2022, Ayuso started his World Tour career at UAE Team Emirates and immediately made the impression that the Spanish public expected. Top five GC results at the Volta a Catalunya and Tour de Romandie showed his class before finishing on the podium at the Vuelta a España in his debut Grand Tour.

After an achilles injury hampered his early season racing, Ayuso returned to form with two stage wins and a second overall at the Tour de Suisse. He will be hoping to continue to build his form for his return to the Vuelta this fall.
