Samu set to stay


Samu finally ended months of speculation surrounding his future by putting pen to paper on a new deal, effectively keeping him with Euskaltel until 2010. Samu will thus remain with the only team he's ever been with for at least another couple of years. At the press-conference, Samu told reporters: "I've decided to stay because of sport and personal reasons. Euskaltel is the only team I've ever been with and, to be honest, I can't picture myself with another jersey than the orange one. It's an immense joy to be able to stay. I feel appreciated and respected by Miguel and Igor, and to me that's fundamental". He further went on to say that there are still economic differences between the two parties, but that wouldn't stop him signing a new contract. Speaking of the new season, Samu is going all in for the Tour de France this year. The Beijing Olympics are also on his schedule, provided he's selected. Though, I don't think he needs to worry too much about that...
