No gold for Euskaltel in Amstel

It was a dismal day for the team in the Amstel Gold Race today. None of the riders were ever really in the mix, or on TV for that matter, as the riders failed to be protagonists in the Dutch one-day classic. Aitor Galdos did well though to come home 31st, 1:55 down, in a group containing names like Voeckler, Gilbert, Scheirlinckx, Bertagnolli, Aerts, Brandt and Kolobnev, while Mikel found the 31 climbs a little too tough, coming in another ten places down, 2:06 back. Egoi ended up 54th, 2:43 in arrears, while Jorge, Iñaki and Juanjo came in 98th, 99th and 100th respectively, all 7:42 down, while Rubén came in alongside Xavier Florencio 8:07 down. Javier naturally found the going tough in his first Ardennes Classic and abandoned. The same team will take part in the Fleche Wallonne on Wednesday, so hopefully the team will perform better than. Aupa!
