Astarloza all set for comeback

Disgraced former Tour de France stage-winner Mikel Astarloza's two-year suspension came to an end yesterday and, according to Basque daily DEIA, he'll make his comeback with the team later this season. It was reported back in April that he would indeed make a return either this year or in time for the 2012 season, but with Euskaltel plagued by injuries it appears he'll get to wear the orange jersey pretty soon. No date for his comeback is set, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him lining up for home-town race Clásica San Sebastián in late July. Apparently he's been training "really hard", but obviously needs some time to get back into the race-form after such a long absence.
