Izagirre impresses at E3 Prijs

Gorka Izagirre showed his pedigree on the cobbles earlier today at the E3 Prijs Vlaanderen-Harelbeke. The 24-year-old stayed close to the front of the peloton throughout the demanding one-day race and crossed the line inside the first group in 30th place. As his team-mates don't seem to be up to much on the cobblestones, Izagirre's strong ride gives the team a decent hope of some sort of presence in Sunday's Gent-Wevelgem and next weekend's Ronde van Vlaanderen.

The only other Euskaltel riders to complete the race were Ricardo García and Gorka's brother Jon. The duo came in 9:16 adrift in 83rd and 91st respectively. Oroz, R Pérez, Sáez and Urtasun all posted DNFs.
