Briefs: Roubaix, Ugarte, Amorebieta

  • In what is likely to delight quite a few fans, Euskaltel's website today reports Jon Izagirre will line up in Sunday's death march to Roubaix. The youngest of the Izagirres shone in Wevelgem before being pulled from the Vlaanderen-team in order to compete in the GP Miguel Induráin last week, but is now back in the fold to substantially bolster the team. Roster for Paris-Roubaix: Alán Pérez, Jon Izagirre, Ricardo García, Adrián Sáez, Pierre Cazaux, Rubén Pérez and Pablo Urtasun.
  • Jaime Ugarte, president of the Vuelta al País Vasco's organizing committee, will leave his post after the race comes to a close tomorrow, Gara reports. His last wish? That Samuel Sánchez triumphs. Read the interview here.
  • El Correo writes that Igor Antón will spearhead Euskaltel's challenge in Sunday's Klasika Primavera in Amorebieta. Samuel Sánchez may also, depending on how he feels, take the start. According to the organizers, this is the team DS Gerrikagoitia will put out: Romain Sicard, Gorka Izagirre, Mikel Landa, Iván Velasco, Amets Txurruka, Peio Bilbao, Victor Cabedo, Miguel Mínguez, Igor Antón and Mikel Nieve.
