Castroviejo ready for Worlds

Jonathan Castroviejo, the gifted all-rounder with Orbea who's likely to join the team before the end of the season, will line up today in the U-23 World Championship road race in Varese. The 21-year-old, who's enjoyed a brilliant season with Euskaltel's feeder team, is the sole Basque representative at the Worlds this year. Jonathan will, according to himself, try to stay out of trouble in the pack before doing his thing on one of the last laps. I'll be rooting for him this afternoon.

As Intxausti and Iban, when he's not feeling absolutely super, he'll just make a training ride out of it. The same happened today where he ended last, along with Wesley Sulzberger, one of the favourites. This could indicate that he had been down as he was actually in the Ponzi- and Costa-group until the last lap. Still, he finished the race as the only Spaniard, riding with the likes of Valls and Madrazo. That's still something.
