Biography

José Luis Arrieta Lujambio

José Luis Arrieta Lujambio (born 15 June 1971, in San Sebastián) is a retired Spanish professional road racing cyclist. He last rode for UCI ProTour team Ag2r–La Mondiale. He is now a sporting director for Movistar Team, the same franchise for which he rode earlier in his career when it was known as Banesto.

Arrieta was a devoted domestique for Miguel Indurain. L'Équipe said of him:

"He no longer counts the hours, the years, spent with his nose in the wind trying to protect his leader for as long as possible."

Arrieta said:

When you have the chance to start your career in so big a team and at the side of a champion as great as Indurain, you grow in the service of sacrifice. I don't complain. To the contrary, I had the chance to live some wonderful moments. When Indurain won, or another rider for whom we had decided to work, it was a victory for all the team men as well."
