Future watch: stage 7

The Tour de l'Avenir came to a close today with a 13,5km ITT from Guillestre to Risoul, and Mikel Landa finished the race in a fine 5th place - a resulting boding well for his coming years in the Euskaltel jersey. He finished a solid 13th overall - proving he's more than just a pure climber - while Jon Izagirre also showed strength and skill against the clock to grab 21st place. Landa was eventually 3:17 behind overall winner Quintana Rojas, who utterly dominated the latter stages of the race and was good value for his win, while Izagirre ended up 34th on GC. I reckon they both have done more than enough by now to warrant a place in Spain's Worlds team. The team is likely to be unveiled in the nearest future, so stay tuned.
