Naturgas all inn on Sunday + videos

Despite the team riding in the Vuelta al Bidasoa through today, Saturday, Naturgas Energía will line up in the prestigious San Isidro Sari Nagusia, otherwise know as the Clásica de Natxitua, on Sunday. In fact, the whole team will take to the start in the Torneo Lehendakari-race in search of the outfit's maiden 2012 victory.

Debabarrena's Aitor González is leading the overall rankings in that particular series of races, a single point ahead of Naturgas' Jon Larrinaga. Team DS Iñigo Urretxua is hoping his star rider isn't feeling the effects of a demanding Bidasoa Itzulia tomorrow morning.

"Hopefully the fatigue from Bidasoa won't have an influence. We're fighting for the overall win with Jon Larrinaga - there's no room for error", he said.

Haritz Orbe, then riding for Bidelan-Kirolgi but now with Orbea, took out last year's race.

Promising Euskaltel climber Peio Bilbao won the race for Naturgas two years back, and you can watch young Bilbao sprint to the win below.

Víctor Etxeberria will line up on Sunday, but is right now making a name for himself in Bidasoa. The youngster is lying in ninth overall, second in the sub-20 classification and leading the "Best Basque"-category. Etxeberria granted an interview after Thursday's stage, check it out below.
