According to the newspaper DAIA, Euskaltel has offered Egoi Martinez a contract for two years in the team. Egoi left Euskaltel after 5 years, for the American team Discovery Channel but now that they quit he has the chance to go back. I really hope he will come because Saunier Duval and Caisse d'Epargne wont do him good, i think.
Due to his fall in the first stage of the Vuelta a Burgos, Ivan Velasco is injured very badly. He broke his left collarbone and he has broken his wrist in two places. With these injuries he won't be able to show himself in races and this is very important since euskaltel wants to go from 31 to 26 riders :(
