Samu outlines Tour ambitions

Samu today confirmed he will take part in next year's Tour de France. He told Cyclingnews about his hopes for the race: "I want to get there in the best possible condition in order to fight for the general classification, but also to win a stage. I don't have a lot of experience in the race (he took part in 2002 and 2003, but abandoned on both occasions) ,but it doesn't matter, as it's very difficult to plan a race that is gained day by day." Samu further revealed that he'll line up at the Vuelta a Murcia, running from March 4-8, where he hopes to hone his climbing and time trialling skills even more. Prior to that, he will have visited the wind-tunnel in California, just like he did last year.

according to some sources Samu could be leaving Euskaltel for 2008 season, not 2009! There are a lot of teams interested in him and offering him quite a lot of money

That would be a travesty... But, no, that's not going to happen, no way. He'll definetely stay for at least another year.
