After the surprising signing of Unai Uribarri (former Euskaltel Euskadi rider), Orbea Oreka signed yesterday Eladio Sánchez, reports Deia. The 23 year-old became pro in 2005 when he rode for Liberty Seguros. When this team ceased to exist, he was signed at the last minute by the team Fuerteventura Canarias. When Fuerteventura fell victim to a lack of sponsors, Sánchez had to look for a new team, and he finally found it in the subsidiary of Euskaltel – Euskadi, the amateur team Orbea Oreka.
Orbea Oreka’s director, Álvaro González de Galdeano, explained yesterday that the squad is now closed. It consists of 12 cyclists: Daniel Sesma, Aitor Olano, Eriz Ruiz de Erentxun, Jonathan Castroviejo, Mikel Nieve, Sergio de Lis, Miguel Mínguez , David Martín, Iván Melero, Igor Romero, Unai Uribarri and Eladio Sánchez.
