On the 2012 Vuelta a España, Aramendia distinguished himself by being part of numerous long breakaways, earning the Combativity award four times in the process, a summit on this Vuelta. It looked like he had a great chance to win the "Most Combative" title for the whole race, but Alberto Contador prevailed.
Aramendia was named the most combative rider overall in the 2013 Vuelta a España, after taking the award three times in the individual stages.
