Euskaltel show up on home roads

Euskaltel put on a battling display but once again came away empty-handed from the Clásica de San Sebastián.

Mikel Nieve ended up fourth and Mikel Landa sixth in a thrilling race that saw Tony Galloping come away with the biggest win of his budding career. Considering the team had opted to field a team virtually bereft of top-end speed, two riders in the top ten was the best they could have hoped for. Local rider Mikel Astarloza came through for 13th to close out a solid day for the team, but the fact is the team is yet to win the biggest race in their own backyard. Considering their current sorry predicament, Saturday might well have been their last ever chance to grab that elusive win.
