Marcos García Fernández (born 4 December 1986) is a Spanish professional road bicycle racer who rides for UCI Continental Team Kinan Cycling Team.[1]

Born in San Martín de Valdeiglesias, García has competed as a professional since the start of the 2009 season, riding as a member of the Xacobeo–Galicia and KTM-Murcia squads before joining Caja Rural for the 2012 season.[2] He has competed in three Grand Tours; two Vuelta a Españas and a Giro d'Italia. On the fourth stage of the 2012 Vuelta a España, he put on a great performance by finishing fourth of the mountain stage, taking first place of his group. He exulted on the finish line, throwing kisses to the crowd; he thought he had won, but he had not, as three escapees had crossed the line before him.[3]
