Looking for sponsors

With the team's future only secure 'till the end of the 2012 season, Fundación Euskadi president Miguel Madariaga has a busy winter ahead of him. Speaking to DEIA a day after Antón vowed a whole nation with his etapón into Bilbao, the eccentric Madariaga was sounding optimistic. "I'm not worried this team might end one day. Euskaltel-Euskadi will stay in the peloton", he stated confidently. "Next year will be very important as I'll try to keep this team going into at least 2013 and 2014. Having to find new sponsors and renew existing ones all the time is tough. If you want to be a part of the WorldTour and take part in the biggest races, ideally you'd want a four-year deal. But I have no doubt we'll succeed. I really hope we do, because this team means so much to so many people. Euskaltel is in the hearts of thousands of Basques. Sometimes I feel the team's value is underestimated. If we were given the recognition we deserve and people really understood how important this team is, we wouldn't have to scramble for sponsors all the time. We'd go on forever!".
