Riding high off Unai Extebarria's victory on the last stage of the Volta a Mallorca, the Euskaltel Euskadi team will head next to the Vuelta a Andalucia - Ruta Ciclista del Sol. Jon Odriozola will return to direct to the boys in orange, and will count on part of the squad that has participated in the Challenge of Mallorca.
Beñat Albizuri, Koldo Fernandez de Larrea, Antton Luengo, Jorge Azanza, Andoni Aranaga, Markel Irizar and Unai Etxebarria will head into the race with a great deal of momentum after the win in the Trofeo Calvia, a race where Odriozola was proud of the team. "We had one rider in every escaping group; in every attempt. That is what was asked of by our sponsors. To act. To be united. To show collectively. And we're actually doing those things."
