Rubén Pérez will be one of a bunch of fast-men that Euskaltel will send to the upcoming Bayern Rundfahrt.
The German stage-race is special to Pérez, of course, as stage one of the 2010 edition was the scene of his first, and to this date only, professional victory. He's been back at the race every year since, but he's yet to find the same success.
Joining him in the hunt for the team's third win of the 2013 season will be pretty much every sprinter in Euskaltel's ranks, including an ace climber looking to bounce back from a disappointing first half of the season.
Jure Kocjan, André Schulze, Steffen Radochla, Jon Aberasturi, Rubén Pérez, Juan José Lobato and Mikel Nieve.
The race runs from May 22-26.
