Pedro's Story

Pedro 1

Hagens Berman Axeon Cycling Team continued it’s five year connection with Portugal in signing the 2018 Portuguese Junior National Road Race champion, Pedro Andrade. The 19-year-old from Santa Maria da Feira joined Axeon from Vito-Feirense-Pnb.

“Joining Hagens Berman Axeon was a dream come true,” said Andrade. “I'm very motivated to start competing and helping the team.”

Since his 2018 national championship, Andrade earned a victory at stage 4 of the 2019 Gp Abimota. He was recently 3rd in the general classification at Volta a São Miguel as well as 3rd at Volta as Terras Santa Maria. In Getxo, Spain, Andrade earned a top 20 placement at Circuito de Getxo (1.1).

Exceling on both short and long climbs, he hopes to aid the team when he’s called upon. The versatile rider will also look to make short group sprints count, where his surprising speed really benefits him. Andrade will focus on improving his time trialing and technical skills throughout the 2020 season.
