None of the headlines continues in summer
We already had it clear, but yesterday it was confirmed. Not one of the players who were part of the Movistar Riders starting quintet in the spring split will continue with the riders. In fact, only one of them will remain in the Orange Super League. Nicolás " Nixerino " Colocho will be a player of G2 Heretics in the summer split
After finishing with Esportmaníacos, it was the turn to present the template of Movistar Riders . Yuste left the set to personally interview the new trainer of the riders. The coach of Movistar Riders will be Álvaro " Xaio " Hernández. The Spaniard arrives at the riders from GamersOrigin where he reached third place as Assistant Coach . This will be his first experience as Head Coach in a first level team, but Xaio was confident.
First things first: who will lead the new LoL roster? The new coach is from Madrid, he loves sushi and he wants to squeeze every player. Have you guessed? It's about Álvaro @XaioHC Hernández! Welcome to your new home.

After introducing Xaio was the turn of the players who were appearing on stage one by one. The first to appear was the toplaner Mauno " Beansu " Tälli. The Estonian player comes from QLASH and has become a substitute at SK Gaming. Xaio himself highlighted the aptitudes that led him to be signed by the riders. "Beansu has shown us that he is a very strong guy in the toplane he is a very hardworking person with a very good attitude that will help us to row forward forever".
The next player to be presented was the jungle which appeared in a smoke like the rest of the signings. The jungler of the riders this season will be Rasmus " styllEE " Kristensen. Like Beansu, the Dane comes from the Italian regional league ( Outplayed ), in which both reached the semifinals. "He has a champion pool very extensive he has shown us that in all situations and against all the jungles he has always been one step ahead," commented his coach about him. ]
Later came one of the great surprises in the afternoon. The midlaner of the team will be Ismael " Miniduke " Martinez. Movistar Riders gives the great opportunity to Miniduke for this season, having been a substitute during the whole split previous. The player was visibly excited to have achieved the position. "They were many days of tryouts a lot of pressure and in the end … The best came out," Miniduke said at the event.
JaVaaa, star signing of Movistar Riders
The best had not yet arrived, and the big announcement from the riders was still to come. His botlane will be formed by Javier " JaVaaa " Martínez (ADC) and Rubén " Rhuckz " Barbosa (Support). Those who were part of the lower line of Penguins last split will wear the Movistar Riders jersey next season. Both were key pieces for the penguins to reach semifinals in the playoffs beating Giants. Rhuckz himself commented that the arrival of JaVaaa to Movistar Riders was key to his signing with the jockeys.

Finally, there was only to announce the sixth man of the team, which will be incorporated into the dynamic starting in June. The substitute of the team plays in the midlane and is Marcus " Priskornet " Priskorn. At the moment he is focused on his studies, but will be 100% committed to the project since he arrives in Madrid. The Danish is a young promise that arrives to reinforce the team as sixth man.
