Stars to align in Piemonte

According to www.cyclingfever.com, Euskaltel will send quite a team to Thursday's Lombardia tune-up, the Giro del Piemonte.

If the usually reliable website is to be believed, this is not confirmed by the team as of yet mind you, the likes of Samuel Sánchez, Igor Antón, Mikel Nieve, Amets Txurruka and Gorka Verdugo will all take the start. This quintet will be joined by an in-form Iván Velasco, for whom this will be his third last outing in the orange jersey, promising youngster Peio Bilbao, who'll look to salvage something from an otherwise largely forgettable season, and trusted domestique and all-rounder Miguel Minguez.

Luckily, though, there'll be no sensational Iñigo Landaluze return as the picture might suggest.

The 1.HC-race will get underway at 10:55 Thursday morning, and will cover 188 clicks between Fossano and Biella.

I hope Txuru can get a good race in! I know he will lay it all on the line.

Would be exciting to see what IGdG and co. do should Amets or Iván grab UCI points in their remaining races!
