Camaño happy with Endura adventure

After having spent nine years at the very top level of professional cycling, former Euskaltel utility man Iker Camaño joined Britain-based Continental team Endura Racing midway through the 2010 season. Two seasons at Phonak, three at Euskaltel and four at Saunier Duval (in it's various guises) brought him a solid reputation but not a single win. Last year alone saw the 32-year-old pull four wins out of the hat. No wonder he's enjoying riding his bike these days.

"Everything went perfectly last year", Camaño told El Correo, reflecting on a year that saw him victorious on a stage and in the overall of the Cinturón de Mallorca, a stage of the Tour of Norway, and a team time trial win in the Czech Cycling Tour. The year also brought him a strong sixth place finish at the Tour of Britain. He's hoping for more of the same in 2012:

"On a personal level, a repeat of this year would make 2012 a success. Everything went to plan this season."

"As for the team, the people here are incredible. Endura aim to take another step in the right direction next year".

Endura Racing confirmed towards the end of October that the native of Santurtzi, Bizkaia, was retained for the coming season. The length of his contract was not disclosed.
