I Izagirre to lead ENECO challenge

Ion Izagirre will look to put his time trialling capabilities to the test next week as he'll head up Euskaltel's ENECO Tour line-up.

The 23-year-old revelation grabbed his very first win as a pro just before this year's Giro in an ITT in the Vuelta a Asturias, and the seven-stage WorldTour-event might suit him as there'll be one 17,4km individual race against the clock as well as the dreaded team time trial on day two.

The youngest of the Izagirres will get Pablo Urtasun, Miguel Minguez, Alan Pérez, Víctor Cabedo, Adrián Sáez, Jorge Azanza and Pierre Cazaux for company in a race that has not resulted in the best of performances from the team over the years, the team's website reports. Last year, Koldo Fernández was the team's top finisher in 37th.
