Murgoitio drops out; Gómez brothers to France

Hirumet-Taldea star Egoitz Murgoitio will not head to Valencia on Sunday after all to take on an international field in the C2-ranked Ciclocross Internacional Ciudad de Valencia.

The 29-year-old is struggling with a niggling injury to his right knee and will therefore stay at home. The injury is not reported to be serious though, so he'll take a so-called "active break" from racing for a week. The upcoming World Cups in Belgium are not thought to be in jeopardy.

One who will be present, though, and hoping to reignite his season after a troubled few weeks with injuries, is Javier Ruiz de Larrinaga.

The lack of racing on in the Basque Country this week will see a sizeable contingent of up-and-coming Basques head over to France to prove their mettle. Gara reports 15 riders have been picked by the Basque Federation to take on the Cross de Nailloux, close to Toulouse, on Sunday.

Bio Racer - Caravanas Erandio brothers Ion and Iñigo Gómez will line up in the sub-23 ranks, juniors Alex Aranburu, Aritz Hernández, Patxi Aldanondo and Gotzon Martín will get a run-out, as well as cadetes Jon Gil, Unai Orbea, Josu Albizua and Jokin Alberdi. Paula Lanz and Lierni Lekuona will start the women's junior event, while Olatz Odriozola, Maite Murgia and Eider Merino will be out to impose themselves on the elite race.
