Euskaltel go missing in Paris-Nice prologue

Euskaltel got their Paris-Nice off to a modest start by failing to place a rider inside the top 50 on Sunday.

While it was a surprise to see Europcar's Damien Gaudin come out tops, there were no similar surprises in the Euskaltel ranks. Noted time triallists Ion Izagirre, Gorka Verdugo and Mikel Astarloza all failed to crack the top 100, with Rubén Pérez's 54th being the best Galdeano's charges could muster.

Results (full results here):
  • (1, Damien Gaudin (Europcar), 3:37)
  • 54, Rubén Pérez, 0:10
  • 60, Gorka Izagirre, 0:11
  • 112, Gorka Verdugo, 0:14
  • 132, Ion Izagirre, 0:16
  • 135, Mikel Astarloza, s.t.
  • 150, Romain Sicard, 0:19
  • 164, Jure Kocjan, 0:21
  • 177, Mikel Nieve, 0:24
