  • Orbea will send a team to the three-day Vuelta Crédito Agrícola Costa Azul in Portugal, starting this Sunday. The following eight riders will compete: Jon Aberasturi, Aritz Bagües, Mikel Bizkarra, Aritz Etxebarria, Noel Martín, Adrián Saez, Beñat Urain and Xabier Zabalo. The team's DS, Álex Díaz, was particularly optimistic on behalf of sprinter Aberasturi when speaking to the team's website yesterday. "Our sprinter, Aberasturi, is feeling good, so we'll go for it. Overall, the race is different to most races we take part in and the level is very high, so we're highly motivated. We'll work as a team".
  • Euskaltel will send a 10-man team to the Klasika Primavera/Amorebieta on April 10, writes Biciciclismo. Samuel Sánchez took out the win last year, and will be hoping for a repeat performance when he lines up alongside Iñaki Isasi, Egoi Martínez, JJ Oroz, Rubén Pérez, Romain Sicard, Amets Txurruka, Pablo Urtasun, Iván Velasco and Gorka Verdugo.
  • Naturgas will as usual take on two separate one-day races this weekend. Eduardo Ardaiz, Carlos Barbero, Karl Baudron, Álex Bilbao, Efrén Carazo, Loic Chetôut, Alain González, Fernando Grijalba, Alberto Guinea, Jon Larrinaga, Urtzi Legarra and Rory Martínez will take on the XVI Laukizko Udala BBK Saria tomorrow. On the hilly parcours, keep an eye out for on-fire Fernando Grijalba. On Sunday, the prestigious Subida a Gorla awaits the red team. Peio Bilbao came agonizingly close to take the win last year (, and once again Grijalba will probably be the main danger-man. Accompanying him, will be the exact same team that will race on Saturday, except for Rory Martínez and Alain González, who'll be replaced by Damián García and Igor Merino. Watch out for the latter as well, he's in for a strong ride I reckon.
