In keeping with their stated objectives prior to the current season, Euskaltel will line up in two races this weekend they've never previously taken part in.
The races in question are the one-day races Brussels Cycling Classic (Saturday, 7. September) and GP de Fourmies (Sunday, 8. September).
Hoping to debut with a bang, the team directors have opted to field a mixture of local and foreign talent.
The roster reads as follows: Mikel Astarloza, Garikoitz Bravo, Ricardo Mestre, Steffen Radochla, Ioannis Tamouridis, Jure Kocjan, Robert Vrecer and Jon Aberasturi.
Óscar Guerrero will lead the team from the car.
