Irizar the TV star

The story of Markel Irizar's way to the top is well known within cycling circles; being diagnosed with testicular cancer at the age of 22, the native of Oñati not only managed to beat the illness and turning pro with his home team, he's gone on to enjoy nine (and counting) fruitful seasons at the highest level of arguably the world's hardest sport. Now, that story is about to get that much more known.

In January, the 32-year-old will feature on Spanish Canal+ program 'Informe Robinson', a program that takes the viewer behind the glamorous facade of top level sport and shows the arduous stories that often lie behind it. The filming started this weekend in Mondragón, Gipuzkoa, and will continue through his team RadioShack-Nissan Trek's training camp in Jávea, Alicante, according to KEC Pro Sport.

In November, the erstwhile Euskaltel rider revealed that, ten years on, he was finally well and truly clear of the illness.
