Report: Txurruka set for Caja Rural

Entirely as expected, Amets Txurruka has decided to join Caja Rural for the upcoming season, BiciCiclismo reports.

Rumours have surfaced ever since he was informed he was let go by Euskaltel that the Spanish Pro Continental outfit was his most likely option. BiciCiclismo have now "learned" that the parties have reached an agreement, though the length of the 30-year-old's contract has not been disclosed.

Joining him at the green team will be current Movistar rider David Arroyo. The 32-year-old former podium finisher at the Giro d'Italia has been linked to Euskaltel for the last few weeks, but is now set to step down a level to continue his career.

That is great to hear. I wish he would have been able to stay with Euskaltel but I hope now he will have more freedom for some victories.

I guess he will be super motivated when he rides in the same race as the orange jerseys...........sad though I am to see him leave, it could be just what he needs at this stage of his career. Be great to see him winning races!
