Movistar refuse to throw in the towel at Tour de France

Movistar team manager Eusebio Unzue says that his team will not throw in the towel at the Tour de France despite conceding more than two minutes to the yellow jersey Chris Froome (Team Sky) in the overall classification.

Born in Ireland to a cycling family and later moved to the Isle of Man, so there was no surprise when I got into the sport. Studied sports journalism at university before going on to do a Masters in sports broadcast. After university I spent three months interning at Eurosport, where I covered the Tour de France. In 2012 I started at Procycling Magazine, before becoming the deputy editor of Procycling Week. I then joined Cyclingnews, in December 2013.
