Haimar to ride Tour and Vuelta

As you can see on the picture, Haimar is having a grea time at the Astana training camp in Tenerife. Unfortunately they still didn't give him a team jersey so he looks a bit 'stupid' just like Popovych and Armstrong (btw what is he pointing at? :p). At the training camp they also reveiled the goals of their riders and Haimar's goal was to ride good races in the Vuelta al Pais Vasco, the Tour de France and the Vuelta d'España. He'll probably be the leader in Pais Vasco, but a helper in the Tour and in the Vuelta he will get the role of second/third man.

Egoi Martinez' own website!

After his great performances in the Vuelta d'España, Egoi Martinez finally got his own personal website. On www.egoimartinez.com you can find some fun stuff to read about Egoi like a biography, a diary and other cool things. One thing that is lacking, an english part of course! (I would gladly translate it if they ask me :p).

I was looking through some sites and realised that there aren't enough fan sites for the Euskaltel guys yet so I would like to make a call for all website makers and fans of Euskaltel to support our orange boys! Here's a list with the sites I know of:

Two newbies go Down Under

Due to the ProTour license wich Euskaltel just received, they are obligated to send out a team Down Under to the heat of Australia. In the 7-men squad , two newbies will represent Euskaltel for the first time. Pablo Urtasun and Sergio de Lis will try to impress us early in the season together with Josu Agirre, Iñaki Isasi, Andoni Lafuente, Markel Irizar and Aitor Hernandez. It's not a team with a strong leader, but some of them might be able to get in a break or take some points for a classification.

I'm back for more + update

The examinations are finally over, the results are in, I'm not too happy with them but I'm quite pleased with my 44/45 on my english exam *proud*. This means that I will again have some time to update my blog!!!

It seems like I didn't miss too much, the only things that reached me are that Jon Bru retired :(, Samuel Sanchez will participate in the GP Miguel Indurain on the 4th of april and ... Euskaltel got their ProTour license for 2009 and 2010 *yes*, but they won't ride the Giro *boooeee*.

Examination period

You probably already noticed that I didn't really have much time to update my blog anymore, cause I've been super busy with school the last weeks. Now that the examination period will start this friday, I won't be able to update my blog. Of course there won't happen much, but you can stay updated by checking http://ibanmayoblog.blogspot.com, www.wvcycling.com or www.biciciclismo.com.
