Career

NetApp–Endura (2014)

After spending two seasons with RadioShack–Leopard, Machado joined NetApp–Endura for the 2014 season. [1] Following a successful start of the season, which saw him winning the overall classification of the Tour of Slovenia, his first Category 2.1 overall win, Machado started the Tour de France for the first time in his career. Machado had a strong start, and was third overall after nine stages. On stage ten, Machado crashed badly on a descent 96 kilometres (60 miles) from the finish, sliding down the road for about 100 metres (330 feet). After being checked by the doctors and when he was expected to abandon the race, he ordered his team to give him back his bicycle, climbed 3 mountains and arrived to the finishing line last, 43 minutes behind the day's winner, Vincenzo Nibali. He was sutured after the stage, and despite arriving outside the time limit, the commissaires allowed Machado to continue on the race due to his efforts. French newspaper L'Équipe described Machado's effort as "heroic". [4]

Team Katusha (2015–2018)

Machado left NetApp–Endura after the 2014 campaign and joined Team Katusha on an initial two-year contract. [2] He signed a contract extension for the 2017 season in October 2016. [5]
