Team time trial travesty

As feared, Euskaltel did not get off to a good start in the Tirreno-Adriatico. "The race of the two seas" commenced today with a 16,8km team time trial on an out-and-back course in Marina di Carrera, and the guys in orange came in dead last, 1:13 down on the impressive Rabobank team. Not much more to say really, as I didn't get to see the stage myself. Maybe they lacked rhythm, or maybe it just didn't click for them on the day. Anyway, they're facing a flat 202km trek from Carrara to Indicatore tomorrow, so hopefully they can get in the action then.

The start of the season is a bit lackluster, isn't it. Well, lets hope Samu can spice things up for Euskaltel in the final stages of Paris - Nice. They need a victory now.

They most certainly do! Can't really see it coming, though, as Antón, Sicard and Samu are not in top shape, and Koldo is out injured.
