Fundación "not involved" in Txurruka decision

The news of Amets Txurruka being deemed surplus to requirements at Euskaltel has stoked the ire of quite a few Euskaltel aficionados. One of them appears to be no less a figure than team founder Miguel Madariaga. According to Madariaga and his Fundación Euskadi, they had nothing to do with the cult hero that is Amets Txurruka leaving the team.

"The Fundación Euskadi, with its president Miguel Madariaga at the head, would like to express that this foundation and Miguel Madariaga have nothing to do with the sporting aspects of this new project", a statement on the team's website reads. "Therefore, the decision to let these two riders (Txurruka and Iván Velasco) go was one taken by the people in charge of the sporting aspects of the project behind Euskaltel, without ever including the Fundación Euskadi Ciclista in the decision making process.

"We'd like to use this opportunity to show our utmost support for both riders, as well as thanking them for their work and commitment over the years, with whom the Fundación Euskadi Ciclista share a very special bond."

There's been no word from Igor González de Galdeano and co. on the matter as of yet, but it's being speculated that the most extreme of reasons (i.e. Víctor Cabedo's passing) might just open up a spot on the team for one of them. Cabedo had a deal in place for next year, but that spot is now of course open.
