In France Euskaltel was present for the Criterium International. On the first day of the two day-three stages race, we got a stage where a sprint just couldn't be avoided. Euskaltel put out Koldo as their first man and they tried everything in their power to get him in front when the sprint started. Unfortunately Koldo couldn't finish off the great work and became 6th. Other bad news came from Javier Aramendia. He fell in the last kilometres and got an injury on his left ribcage. Today there will the queens stage and a short time trial.
