Euskaltel Euskadi have confirmed team leader Samuel Sánchez will spearhead the team in the Vuelta a España later this year.
The 35-year-old had a somewhat mixed Giro d'Italia, failing to make an impact on the general classification. In the Spanish equivalent he'll once again aim for the overall podium, having already finished second and third in the race in the past.
Ten riders are in the mix for the remaining eight spots, among them Igor Antón and Mikel Nieve.
The full long-list reads as follows:
Peio Bilbao, Igor Antón, Juan José Oroz, Mikel Nieve, Samuel Sánchez, Mikel Landa, Pablo Urtasun, Gorka Verdugo, Egoi Martínez, Gorka Izagirre and Jorge Azanza.
