Romain Sicard joints Euskaltel

This might be old news for you, but I apparently missed this while I was on vacation. Romain Sicard will ride in the orange jersey for the next two jears. He's a talented young guy from the Orbea cycling team who already won two races this year, the Subida al Naranco and a stage in the Tour de l'Isard. Romain is from France so he will also bring a nice diversity to the team. I hope he will get selected for the Tour de l'avenir so we can see what he's really worth but I have confidence in him!

He's a great rider, saw him live at the Subida al Naranco and I was really impressed. He climbed so well and he was just 21.

Still wondering why they didn't sign Castroviejo yet, he performed so well at the Circuito Montanes (2nd overall) and in other races but still doesn't get a contract. Ended up 6th in the Spanish elite national time trial championships as well. I say he is a very complete rider and I don't understand why Euskaltel didn't sign him.

I'm wondering the same thing! There were rumours he would have signed last year already so this year it should become true. Probably Fuji is also offering him something like they did with Intxausti (and then they will let them ride too much races and just kill them :x)
