Euskaltel-Euskadi's promising young Basque rider Amets Txurruka has extended his contract with the squad until 2010. The contract of the 25 year-old 2007 Tour de France most aggressive rider award was due to end this year. Txurruka said he is proud that "the team has confidence in my abilities, and I hope to answer with a great performance. Euskaltel Euskadi is my home team and has a philosophy that makes it very special. Being a part of this project is great and I want to thank Miguel Madariaga and Igor González de Galdeano for their confidence in me."
