Romandie line-up

The six-day Tour de Romandie gets underway today with eight Euskaltel riders on the start line. There's no word from the team itself who those eight will be, but according to the race's own website it'll be Castroviejo, Fernández, Isasi, Martínez, A Pérez, Txurruka ,Velasco and Verdugo. As usual it's quite the demanding parcours, starting with a prologue later today in and around Martigny. The prologue should suit Castroviejo to a tee, while the few flat stages on offer should be an opportunity for Fernández to fine-tune his sprint after a truncated start to the season. The hilly stages will hopefully see Verdugo, Martínez, Verdugo and Txurruka in the thick of it, picking up a few points towards the WorldTour rankings.
