Intxausti signs for Movistar

Beñat Intxausti has officially signed for Team Movistar. The 24-year-old has put pen to paper on a deal that will keep him with Unzué's outfit for the next three years. Purportedly, Sky, Garmin, Geox, the Schleck's team and Astana were also interested in securing his services, but he opted for Movistar due to the team's 'ability to protect and work for its leaders', whatever that means. Not the worst move he could have done, but not really the best one either I reckon. He might end up riding shot-gun for the team's numerous leaders, something he probably would not end up doing at Euskaltel.

He probably should have stayed on Euskaltel, were he certainly would have got a clear leader role next year... It's no secret that Valverde will be back at Moviestar when his suspension is out, and they have so many good stage racers already, so it will be tough for Intxausti...
