Today the Tour de l'Avenir started, probably the most important race for young stage riders in the world. Ar first sight this might not be interesting for us, but Romain Sicard the guy that already has a contract with Euskaltel is competing. And he immediately impressed everyone by getting second in the first stage. It became a sprint with another good french rider Bérard but unfortunately he couldn't beat him. There were also two other interesting riders there cause there are rumours they would join Euskaltel too. Jonathan Castroviejo became 39th, Gorka Izaguirre gave up.
