News on Euskaltel future later today

After speculation back and forth on the team's future for the better part of six months, team heads will at a press conference go official on the "new project" later today.

BiciCiclismo reports that Euskaltel will stage a press conference at noon today, Tuesday, "to inform about the future of Euskaltel Euskadi". Click this link to get all the latest during the day.

Some information has already been disclosed though. According to el Diario Vasco, the company behind the team will be called Basque Cycling Pro Team, and all the big-name riders will stay on in orange. That includes the likes of Sánchez, Nieve, Antón, Landa, Izagirre x 2, Bilbao, Astarloza etc.

The team is likely to be made up of 28 riders (possibly 30), meaning Igor González de Galdeano will dip into the non-Basque transfer market to make up the numbers. Carlos Barredo of Rabobank and Daniel Navarro of Saxo Bank-Tinkoff Bank, both former team-mates of Galdeano at the now-infamous Liberty Seguros outfit, are rumoured to be possible signings. The signing of the two Asturians would, allegedly, go hand in hand with the company's new commercial interests in Samu's home region.
