Biography

Ábraham Olano was a Spanish road racer who was hoped to be the next great Spaniard, after Miguel Indurain. Olano never equalled the achievements of Indurain in the grand tours, but he did win the 1995 World Championship road race, and in 1998 was Time Trial World Champion. His one victory in a major tour came at the 1998 Vuelta à España. His best finishes at the Giro d’Italia were second in 2001 and third in 1996. At the Tour de France he placed fourth in 1997. Olano also won Tirreno-Adriatico in 2000. After his career ended in 2001 he ran the 2006 San Sebastián marathon in 2-39:19.
