Bilbao pulls out of Madrid

Peio Bilbao will have to wait yet a while longer for his eagerly-anticipated bow in the orange jersey of Euskaltel after the team revealed just minutes ago that they've decided to pull him from the Vuelta a Madrid commencing tomorrow. The youngster was supposed to take part in the Critérium International back in March but fractured his elbow prior to the race, virtually just days after joining the team. Earlier today he was supposed to be race-fit, but it appears the team managers have had a change of heart and have opted to extend his lay-off as a precaution. There's no word yet on when he'll indeed start competing for the team, but my bet is he'll toe the start-line on May the 25th in the Bayern Rundfahrt.
