CareerEdit

Lobato joined the Movistar Team for the 2014 season,[1] after his previous team – Euskaltel–Euskadi[8] – folded at the end of the 2013 season.[1] He then went on to sign a 2-year contract with LottoNL–Jumbo starting 2017.[2] In December 2017, Lobato's contract was terminated, for possession of sleeping pills during a pre-season training camp – violating the team's internal rules.[9]

He joined Nippo–Vini Fantini–Europa Ovini during the 2018 season, remaining until the end of 2019,[4] before joining Fundación–Orbea for the 2020 season.[5]
