García dropped from Giro team

Euskaltel Euskadi have decided to make a last-minute alteration to their Giro d'Italia line-up: out goes would-be-debutant Ricardo García, in comes Portuguese newcomer Ricardo Mestre.

The team announced their 'chosen nine' a fortnight ago - and back then García was included in the line-up. Now it transpires he won't go after all, as a team communiqué on Friday lists Mestre instead of the former Orbea rider.

No reason was given for the substitution.

The full team thus reads as follows:
Samuel Sánchez, Gorka Verdugo, Jorge Azanza, Ioannis Tamouridis, Robert Vrecer, Miguel Mínguez, Egoi Martínez, Ricardo Mestre and Pablo Urtasun.

Good luck to Ricardo, I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do when it gets into the high mountains, I've heard he's got a lot of potential.
