Francisco Javier Aramendia Llorente (born December 5, 1986 in Pamplona) is a Spanish road bicycle racer for UCI Professional Continental Team team Caja Rural-Seguros RGA.[2]

Professional career[edit]

On the 2012 Vuelta a España, Aramendia distinguished himself by being part of numerous long breakaways,[3] earning the Combativity award four times in the process, a summit on this Vuelta.[4] It looked like he had a great chance to win the "Most Combative" title for the whole race, but Alberto Contador prevailed.[5]

Aramendia was named the most combative rider overall in the 2013 Vuelta a España, after taking the award three times in the individual stages.
