sausol completes Movistar Riders move

The former MAD Lions and Partizan player has replaced Raúl "⁠DeathZz⁠" Jordán Nieto on Movistar Riders.

Movistar Riders have announced the completion of the transfer of Pere "⁠sausol⁠" Solsona Saumell from Partizan. The 22-year-old comes in to take DeathZz's place on the Spanish roster in the second move the organization has undergone in as many months.

The team previously signed Antonio "⁠Martinez⁠" Martinez following the departure of their star sniper, Alvaro "⁠SunPayus⁠" Garcia, to ENCE in the August tournament break.

Movistar Riders hope to get back on track with newest addition sausol

The loss of SunPayus, who had been at the forefront of their title-winning campaign at ESL Challenger Valencia and run to the semi-finals at IEM Cologne, saw Movistar Riders experience a tough fall from grace in the past two months.

Following the changes, the Spaniards failed to qualify for the IEM Road to Rio Europe RMR, finished at the bottom of Group D at ESL Pro League Season 16 with just one map win over five series, and exited ESL Challenger Rotterdam in the group stage.

Movistar Riders will now attempt to get back on track with their newest addition of sausol. The 22-year-old first came up through the Spanish scene with Cream in 2019 before he joined MAD Lions in 2021 and began turning heads with impressive performances on the tier-two scene.

In the latter half of 2021 sausol's individual level dropped off and he was subsequently benched from MAD Lions at the end of the year. In 2022 he teamed up with former CR4ZY coach and FunPlus Phoenix in-game leader Luka "⁠emi⁠" Vuković, first on Coalesce before putting together a new team alongside the Serbian in Partizan in August. He has averaged a 1.05 rating this year, mainly playing against sub-top-50 competition.

Movistar Riders' lineup looks as follows:

Spain Alejandro "⁠mopoz⁠" Fernández-Quejo Cano
Spain Alejandro "⁠alex⁠" Masanet
Spain David "⁠dav1g⁠" Granado Bermudo
Spain Antonio "⁠Martinez⁠" Martinez
Spain Pere "⁠sausol⁠" Solsona Saumell

Spain Galder "⁠bladE⁠" Barcena (coach)

Unexpected but I love this move. Tbh never liked deathzz, I felt he was quite overrated. But I really liked what I saw from sausol in mad lions. I think he’s a great player. Hope it works out for Moviestar

It's a pretty big move and a bit controversial since a large part of the community wanted it to be -dav1g and +adams, but Movistar Riders has been behind sausol for quite some time, since Mad Lions. Now it's time to wait to see how the change goes and if the entrance of sausol changes something or if Riders continues with this streak.

We will see. In papers it is an upgrade, probably its a better upgrade if they've changed dav1g for him instead of Deathzz. They said that sausol has good mid-game calls too, thats what the team leaks more with sunpayus going to ENCE. So, maybe it works maybe its the start of the end, but right now it's not like a big thing. A year or 2 years ago sausol was performing so well on MAD Lions and they tried to buy him but MAD Lions didn't want to sell, at this time it was a big move, but now we don't know sausol level that much, he wasn't playing anything important.
