Iban Mayoz to Fuji

Like Haimar Zubeldia, another ex-rider from Euskaltel found a new team for 2010. Iban Mayoz rode two years for Xacobeo-Galicia but will represent the colours of the 'haunted' team Footon-Servetto next year.

Haimar to Team RadioShack

Just like with Alberto Contador, there were some troubles with the transfer to another team for ex-Euskaltel rider Haimar Zubeldia, but as was said during the Tour de France already, Haimar will follow Lance Armstrong, Levi Leipheimer and others to the new ProTour team lead by Johan Bruyneel. Haimar said to Biciciclismo that being in a team with Johan Bruyneel was the ultimate reason for him since he had always admired Bruyneel's skills of directing a team.

Ivan Velasco: 'It has been a tough year'

-What has been the best moment of the season?
The truth is that I haven't got much luck this year with injuries and diseases, but although I wasn't yet at top level, I was very pleased with the Tour of Switzerland.
-What would you like to remember and forget about this year on personal level?
Personally it has been a hard year. I have learned a lot on psychological level, especially to become better after a hard period, that would I like to remember. I would forget the fracture of three ribs I had during the Vuelta a la Rioja and the training in July.
-Facing 2010, what are your hopes?
For 2010, the only thing I hope to do is to show my top level, which I haven't been able to this year.
