CareerEdit

He impressed the team managers after getting second place of the 2011 Girobio, a smaller version of the Giro d'Italia for younger riders.[1] The team signed him for 2012 and 2013. In December 2012, Anacona was injured in a training crash, after he collided with a dog. He suffered a broken peroneal malleolus and dislocated his ankle bone.[1]

In the mountainous 2014 Tour of Utah, Anacona helped his leader Chris Horner obtain the second place of the race, taking the third step of the podium himself.[2] On the mountaintop finish of Stage 9 of the 2014 Vuelta a España, Anacona almost took the leader's jersey by soloing to the line for the stage victory. He attacked from a breakaway of 31 riders and missed the top spot in the overall classification by a mere 9 seconds.[3]

He was named after cyclists Peter Winnen and Andrew Hampsten, but due to a mistake, his first name became Winner instead of Winnen.[4]

In 2015, Anacona went to Movistar on a 2-year contract.[5] He was named in the start list for the 2015 Tour de France.[6]
