Paris-Nice & Murcia line-ups

Igor Antón will spearhead Euskaltel's Paris-Nice charge this coming Sunday, and he'll be supported by a mix of proven veterans and exciting young talent. Astarloza, who's been in solid form so far this season, will provide support on the flats as well as in the mountains, while French duo Sicard and Cazaux will look to put recent injury troubles behind them at their home race. Gorka Izagirre will be on to look out for on pretty much every stage, while young climber Peio Bilbao - probably one of the most gifter riders Euskaltel have ever had - will look to make his mark on the hillier stages. Newcomers Ricardo García and Adrián Sáez close out the roster.

Roster: Antón, Astarloza, Bilbao, Cazaux, García, Izagirre, Sáez, Sicard.
