Stars line up for Getxo appointment

Euskaltel will field the likes of Igor Antón and the Izagirre brothers in next Tuesday's Circuito de Getxo.

The one-day race, taken out in 2009 by then-Euskaltel rider Koldo Fernández, will see recent Clásica Ordizia victor Gorka Izagirre line up alongside his brother Ion, as well as Vuelta-bound duo Igor Antón and Mikel Landa. Juan José Oroz, Peio Bilbao, Pablo Urtasun, Iván Velasco, Miguel Minguez and Alan Pérez complete the line-up, according to the team's website.

The race will be held on Tuesday the 31st of July on the traditional 170km circuit taking in the usually decisive climb of Txomintxu Arkotxa. The race is run in the memory of the late Ricardo Otxoa, the brother of the more famous Javier. Ricardo died when a car ran into him and his brother while out training back in the early months of 2011. His brother became seriously disabled, but has continued to compete on the bike in para-cycling events.

Euskaltel's top finisher last year was the young Peio Bilbao in 13th.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having
a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
