Tomorrow the 100th edition of the Giro d'Italia will start in the beautiful city Venice. I'm very excited because it promisses to be a great edition, with great stages and no clear favourite. Unfortunately Euskaltel won't participate this year because they didn't feel it would fit in their plan. As a return we get Xacobeo with Iban Mayoz, a former Euskaltel member, guarentee for some great attacks. During the Giro Euskaltel will be present in the Volta a Catalunya and the Bayern Rundfahrt.
