Rui's Story

Words: Sean Weide Stripes Date: 4 March 2015

Rui 1

Like his identical twin brother, Ivo, Rui Oliveria is someone you are sure to see in the bunch sprints.

Now which brother will be finishing ahead of the other is a question much like the scenario of figuring out how you can tell them apart.

"Sometimes he does a better sprint. Sometimes it is me. It depends on the race," Rui said. "But I feel that I also have more potential than just doing well in sprints."

His 2016 season was one of ups and downs. He missed half the season after fracturing his femur. But like his brother, he still found success on the track, finishing eighth in the world championships in the scratch race.

  • Languages: English, Portuguese, Spanish
  • Favorite app: Instagram
  • Favorite movie: "Hacksaw Ridge"
  • Race he would someday like to win: Tour of Flanders
  • After cycling, he would like to: continue to be involved in the sport.
