Wednesday round-up

  • Euskaltel didn't fare too well in today's 43km ITT in the Dauphiné starting and finishing in Grenoble. Verdugo was as anticipated the team's best rider, taking an okay 34th at 3:08, while team leader Samu Sánchez was a mildly disappointing 42nd at 3:27. Txurruka clocked a decent time, finishing 56th at 3:51, whilst Bilbao was hugely impressive in such a long, flat TT, taking 69th at just 4:18. Landa didn't do badly either, placing 77th at 4:30. Martínez was 94th at 4:57, Urtasun 144th at 6:33 and Velasco 156th at 7:10. Going into the latter part of the Dauphiné, Samu is lying 24th overall.
  • Orbea will send an eight-man team to Portuguese four-day race Volta ao Alentejo, commencing tomorrow. Looking for stage-wins, the team will be represented by Aberasturi, Martín, Zabalo, Sáez, García, Etxebarria, Blázquez and Urain.
