Dismal NCRR performance

Euskaltel once again failed to put up a fight at the National Championship's road race today. Antton and Markel did well to get into the day's big break but, sadly, that was as good as it got for the whole team. Lacking the big guns as usual, the team had to make do with Egoi's 23rd place, Javier's 53rd, Amets' 63rd, and Josu's 71st. Not much to write home about, a bit embarassing in fact, but that's the way it goes sometimes. I didn't get to watch the race but, judging by the placing, I'm a bit worried for Amets. He ended up way back, and there's six days to go until the race kicks off in Brest. He probably knows what he's doing though, so I won't waste too much time worrying about it.

Ah well Anton was nowhere too and he is in form certainly, so I don't worry. Euskaltel simply doesn't care about the Spanish national championships.

I'm pretty sure he knows what he is doing. He'll probably ride into form in the first week, then destroy them in the mountains. What do you think of this years route?

I like this year's route. No prologue, just two TTs, lots of mountains, no TTT...can it get any better?? Certainly a good route for the team.
