Unai Etxebarria in 2007 : Farewell

It was Unai's 12th year with Euskaltel and this would become his last one. But he definitely wanted to show what he was still capable of. In his third race of the season, the Trofeo Calvia, he showed this by winning the race. He went on to the Tirreno Adriatico with a 19th place in stage 2 and the Vuelta a Andalucia where he got a 11th place in the first stage and a 28th spot in the general rank. In the Klasika Primavera he finished 25th, but in Benelux classics he couldn't get a good spot. He finished 22th in the first stage of the Vuelta a Catalunya and his last good result of the season was in the prologue of the Eneco Tour, with a 35th place. He ended his season in Plouay with a 121th place and this was also his last official race. FAREWELL UNAI, WE WILL MISS YOU. I met him twice this year in the Eneco Tour and he was a really friendly man, always ready to sign or smile for a picture.
