Last Saturday, Euskaltel-Euskadi could have been the only team that reached the last finish line of the Vuelta al País Vasco in Oiartzun with the complete team, but in the last kilometres, Jorge Azanza crashed into a wall. He had to abandon the race and to undergo medical examinations, that detected a fracture of his left collarbone, also affecting the ligament.

Azanza will undergo surgery tomorrow and rest for at least one month. "I don't want to set myself a time limit, I will go step by step," he told Diario de Noticias. "First, I'm going to recuperate and then I will train again to return to competition in May or June."
