Injured riders return in Madrid

Euskaltel will send a powerful line-up to this weekend's Vuelta a Madrid, including young duo Peio Bilbao and Mikel Landa who are fit and ready to go after being out injured for quite a while. It'll be young climber Bilbao's first ever race for Euskaltel, so he'll no doubt be highly motivated. Joining the du will be a team full of potential stage- and overall winners: Jonathan Castroviejo, Amets Txurruka, Koldo Fernandez, Alan Pérez and the Izagirre brothers. Castroviejo will be one of the biggest favourites for Saturday's first half-stage, a 7,8km ITT that should be perfectly suited to his characteristics. The afternoon stage is likely to come down to a sprint so Koldo will be eyeing that one make no mistake. Sunday's stage is one for the climbers and puncheurs, so look out for Txurruka and Gorka Izagirre in particular.
