Euskaltel stars ride for Ormaetxea

Several Euskaltel riders, among them Haimar, Mikel, Koldo and Amets, will today line up in the annual Criterium Jokin Ormaetxea. Jokin Ormaetxea was, if you remember, the first-year pro who tragically died in a car accident back in 2004. Euskaltel rider Joseba Albizu was the driver that day, but has of course no guilt in the accident. He was himself severly injured, but recovered with time. At today's race Igor will be given the prize of "Best Basque rider 2008" by the organizer. A great gesture to a great rider.

And it could be an even better year for him. It is a bit painful that he still is the best Basque rider though he had all those injuries in the spring and that fall in the Vuelta. But congrats Igor, you deserve it!
