Daniel Navarro García (born 18 July 1983) is a Spanish professional road bicycle racer, currently riding for UCI Professional Continental team Cofidis.[3]


Navarro was born in Salamanca.[4][5] Having been one of Alberto Contador's domestiques for most of his career, he left Saxo Bank–Tinkoff Bank at the end of the 2012 season, and joined Cofidis on a two-year contract from the 2013 season onwards.[2] In 2013, Navarro won the Vuelta a Murcia. He later had his first top ten grand tour finish, finishing 9th overall in the 2013 Tour de France. He had to abandon the 2014 Tour de France due to some intense stomach pain.[6] At the 2014 Vuelta a España, he obtained the biggest victory of his career on Stage 13, a medium-mountain stage.[7] He went on to finish 10th overall that year.

In August 2018, after six years away from the WorldTour, Team Katusha–Alpecin announced that they had signed Navarro on a two-year deal from 2019, with a role as a climbing domestique for Ilnur Zakarin as well as having the opportunity to ride for himself on occasions.[8]
