He impressed the team managers after getting second place of the 2011 Girobio, a smaller version of the Giro d'Italia for younger riders. The team signed him for 2012 and 2013. In December 2012, Anacona was injured in a training crash, after he collided with a dog. He suffered a broken peroneal malleolus and dislocated his ankle bone.
In the mountainous 2014 Tour of Utah, Anacona helped his leader Chris Horner obtain the second place of the race, taking the third step of the podium himself. On the mountaintop finish of Stage 9 of the 2014 Vuelta a España, Anacona almost took the leader's jersey by soloing to the line for the stage victory. He attacked from a breakaway of 31 riders and missed the top spot in the overall classification by a mere 9 seconds.
