Telefonica announced a deal with event organiser Unipublic to become technology partner and exclusive telecommunications provider for Spain's La Vuelta cycle race over the next three years. The deal follows Telefonica's commitment to renewing its sponsorship of the Movistar Team for another three seasons, until 2019. Telefonica began sponsoring the team in the 2011 season and the cyclists wearing the blue Movistar jersey have since achieved over 180 victories, with their rider Nairo Quintana winning the 2016 edition of La Vuelta for the first time. The Movistar team has won the WorldTour
