Sunday's final stage to the Champs-Élysées is the last time that Euskaltel will take part in the biggest bike race on earth.
So says team head Igor González de Galdeano. The team's future's been up in the air for some time, and it now seems it's over. For good.
"This is the last time the Euskaltel jersey will be in the Tour de France", he tells Bilbao-daily El Correo. "No sponsors have visited us during the race. The public institutions have not stepped up and, from what I can tell, they're not going to step up".
What's more: with no support from the regional institutions, telecommunications giant Euskaltel will also withdraw their sponsorship.
"If there's no economic project, there won't be a sporting project", he says.
After 13 consecutive appearances in the Tour, Galdeano et al. appear to have come to the metaphorical end of the road.
That's not so say there won't be a team at all next year, but it appears it'll be distinctly different from the present outfit.
"There are sponsors interested in this project, that it keeps going, but it'll be different", he explains. "Sponsors are ready to come on board, but they have to step forward.
"But it will be a wholly different set-up - not remotely close to this one".
