Naturgas news

Despite being well into the season, Naturgas Energía will hold their annual team presentation this coming Friday. The team will be unveiled at 11:00 AM in the Centro-Museo Vasco de Arte Contemporáneo in the Basque capital of Vitoria-Gasteiz, reports.

The following day the team will line up in Villatuerta for a Torneo Lehendakari-race. On Sunday they'll be present at the second round of the Torneo Euskaldun in Estella, site of the annual staging of the GP Miguel Induráin.

Looking back at the races this past weekend, DS Iñigo Urretxua was pleased with the team's performance. Victor Etxeberria finished fourth in Lizartza on Saturday, while Jon Larrinaga placed 21st in the Copa de España-race in Aiztondo the day after. "On Saturday we fought for the win, but in the end it eluded us. As a team we did well though. We were present in the breaks and were active throughout, showing our strength. We placed four riders among the first twelve - that shows the level of the team as a whole was high."

"On Sunday we had another goal: to learn how to ride at a higher level of competition", he told la Fundación Euskadi's website. "We were close to the front, positioned ourselves well and infiltrated the breaks".
