Team presentation

The 2011 team presentation was successfully held in the Teatro Principal in Sán Sebastián yesterday. As we've become accustomed to when it comes to Euskaltel presentations, it was all the usual stuff, with a host of celebrities (local celebrities anyway) present, Madariaga, Galdeano, Ardanza et al. addressing the crowd, the team posing for photos... Not overly exciting in other words, but I guess that's the way team presentations go. Except for the local celebrities whom you all probably never have heard of, there were some names that should be familiar to most of you. A certain Abraham Olano was present, and so too was Javier Guillén, José Luis Arrieta, Iñigo Cuesta and José Antonio Ardanza. The team leaders, Antón and Samu, repeated what they've been saying for the last couple of months, i.e. that Antón is aiming for a stage in the Giro and the overall in the Vuelta, while Samu aspires to win País Vasco and grab a top-three placing in the Tour. Madariaga talked about how the team aims to repeat last year's historic win-tally or go even better. The term "Euskaltel Euskadi: Más que un equipo", highlighting the uniqueness of the squad, was everywhere to be seen and heard.
