Biography

One of the great tactical endurance racers on the track, Joan Llaneras won a total of nine major titles in the points race and Madison. In all, Llaneras won seven World Championships, four in the points race (1996, 1998, 2000 and 2007), and three in the Madison (1997, 1999, 2006). Two of his Madison world titles were won with Isaac Gálvez, who tragically died after a fall in the six-days of Gent in 2006. His only Madison event after Gálvez’ death came at the 2008 Olympics, where Llaneras won silver. It was his fourth Olympic medal, having earlier won the 2000 and 2008 points race, while winning the 2004 silver medal in that event. He retired after the Beijing Olympics.
