Euskaltel round-up

After a few hectic days it's time to give you the latest news on Euskaltel. Not that there's that much to tell to be honest, but here it goes:

  • Euskaltel have released their preliminary Vuelta a España line-up. Igor, Mikel, Koldo, Amets, Rubén, Alán and Egoi will definitely take the start. Three riders, Jorge, Iván and Iñigo, will have to fight it out for the remaining two spots, though Iñigo's strong form of late should secure him a place on the team.
  • After his gold in the road race and 6th place in the ITT, Samu was given a grand reception when he returned to Oviedo, Asturias. Samu revealed that, yes, his tears on the podium after winning gold was due to his mother's death 8 years ago. He also revealed that he won't ride the Vuelta, but that he'll ride the Tour of Poland instead to prepare for the Worlds in Varese.
  • Euskaltel for the ENECO Tour, 20/8-27/8: Iñigo, Gorka, Dioni, Andoni, Josu, Beñat and Javier. Antton is listed to race, but he's sadly retired, so someone will have to replace him.
  • Euskaltel for GP Plouay: Haimar, Juanjo, Iñaki, Markel, Jon, Lander and the Aitors.
