Strong team for Bayern Rundfahrt

The Bayern-Rundfahrt will get underway on Wednesday, and, like in recent years, Euskaltel will send a team.

The five-day race will see a versatile seven-man squad take to the German roads in the hope of building on Rubén Pérez's win in the same race two years ago, reports. Man of the moment Pablo Urtasun will be present, and will be ably assisted on the flats by Alan and Rubén Pérez, as well as Gorka Izagirre. The strong climbing trio of Mikel Landa, Peio Bilbao and Ricardo García will also be present.

Álex Díaz will be the DS in charge of affairs.

The race is quite hilly throughout, but the penultimate day's 26,4km ITT is likely to settle the score among the riders in contention for the overall win.

Really excited to see the guys here in Bavaria next week. It´s my only chance to see Euskaltel live in the season.

Ah, I can imagine. How's Euskaltel's fan base in Germany?

Unfortunately not very big I guess! At least I have not met one single other Euskaltel fan at the Bayern Rundfahrt or the former Deutschland Tour. But you can see some hobby riders wearing Euskaltel jerseys on the roads from time to time
