Antton, it's now or never

My personal favourite Antton Luengo is facing a "make or break"-season next year. The 26-year-old climbing prodigy showed flashes of brilliance in the mountains in 2006, but failed to build on those encouraging rides this season. After seeing Antton rock the mountains in the Deutschland Tour and Subida Urkiola, my hopes were big for the youngster this season. He started out exceptionally well though, it has to be said. He finished a very strong second on the opener of the Vuelta a Andalucía, but since then, he kind of disappeared a bit. He didn't record any results of note for the remainder of the campaign, so he has to start performing regularly if he is to remain with the team in the long-term I'm afraid. There's no doubting the talent, but without results to show for it, it doesn't help. Though, I believe he'll take a step up this year and prove what a great rider he is. Aupa Antton!
