Baril had two of her three career victories this season, repeating as champion of the 1.1-rated, one-day Spanish race Gran Premio Ciudad de Eibar and taking a stage of the 2.1-rated Tour Cycliste Féminin International de l’Ardèche on her way to fourth on GC.
In WorldTour races, Olivia came fourth in Itzulia Women, sixth in the Tour of Scandinavia, 11th in the Tour de Suisse Women and 29th in the Tour de France Femmes.
At Nationals she was runner-up in both the time trial and the road race. At Worlds she placed 19th in the time trial and 34th in the road race. She is ranked 34th by the UCI, third highest on UAE-ADQ.
Baril is the fourth signing for Movistar. The Spanish squad is losing six riders before 2024, including the retiring Annemiek van Vleuten.
