Euskaltel will send six of their strongest riders against the clock to the World Championships Team Time Trial in Florence this weekend.
The 56,8km event kick-starts the Worlds on Sunday 22. September, and Euskaltel will send a team featuring three different nationalities.
Greek time trial king Ioannis Tamouridis will be present, and so too will Frenchman Romain Sicard. Accompanying the duo will be veterans Mikel Astarloza, Gorka Verdugo and Jorge Azanza, while Ion Izagirre will be the team's youngest, yet possible strongest, rider on the start line.
