Simply the best


It seems I missed the biggest weekend in Euskaltel's history. That feels bad for an Euskaltel devotee like me, but I guess you can't see it all. It's a shame, as Euskaltel put on a show like no other and totally crushed all opponents the last three days.

I've got nothing to say on Samu that hasn't already been said. I'm lost for superlatives when it comes to this man. Brilliant, world-class or amazing just doesn't do him justice. I'm not going to write too much about his triple-win, as it's all old news by now. I guess the most propriate thing to say now would be "thank you, Samu". Thank you for winning three stages, thank you for getting Euskaltel's first podium in a grand tour, thank you for putting Euskaltel up there with the very best and thank you for the joy you've brought to all of us Euskaltel fans.

Igor was superb, as we've become used to, and so was the rest of the team. Rarely have I seen such grit, determination and pure will in our team. EVERYONE on the team contributed to making this Vuelta Euskaltel's best ever three-week race. It was a joy to watch, and the team's devoted work for Samu made me proud. Evaluation of the team and each rider will of course appear in a day or two. I'm already looking forward to writing it. Euskaltel, we love you!

I just agree with you from my deepest heart.

And now, let's see if Samu can win the rainbow jersey. I will support him a lot, of course!

Wow, I would really like to see Samuel wearing the rainbow jersey during 2008. But Freire and Bettini look very confident...

If Bettini gets to start that is...
