Velasco makes the move to Caja Rural

Released Euskaltel rider Iván Velasco will ride for Caja Rural next year, BiciCiclismo reports this morning.

The 32-year-old, 11th overall in the Tour of Beijing recently, will thus be reunited with Amets Txurruka, who it was reported yesterday will also don the iconic green jersey as of 2013 and beyond. General Manager Igor González de Galdeano received much flak for releasing the long-serving climber just after the completion of the Vuelta a España, but a move to Caja Rural has been on the cards ever since.

He'll of course also team up again with erstwhile Euskaltel team-mate Javier Aramendía at the Professional Continental team, while another former team-mate, Aitor Galdós, is on the look out for a new outfit after being let go at the end of the season.
