Samu set for Classics

According to Biciciclismo, Samu Sánchez will take part in this year's Ardennes Classics. Samu opted not to take the start last year, but Galdeano confirmed to the Spanish website that he'll return for Fleche Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège this season. Depending on his state of form after concluding the Vuelta al País Vasco a few days prior, he might also do Amstel Gold. Igor Antón, who stepped in admirably for Samu last year by taking 4th and 6th in Fleche and Liège respectively, is not likely to show. With both eyes fixed on the Giro, it's unlikely that the diminutive climber will line up, but Galdeano refused to rule it out entirely.

I think cyclingnews posted an article about Anton preparing for the Ardennes, however I hope that is not the case. Cadel Evan's implosion in the Giro last year should be enough to scare Euskaltel from having Anton participate in FW and LBL.

Great to see Samu lining up though, he should be on some good form!
