Former Euskaltel rider Aitor Osa has, as you might know by now, been cleared of any involvment in the infamous Operacion Puerto. That means that he`s now free to join any team he wants, and I think Euskaltel should jump at the chance of signing such a classy rider. Aitor rode for Euskaltel back in the good, old days, from `94 to `96. Since then he`s been with Banesto/Illes Balears and Liberty Seguros. The now 33-year-old climber has racked up several brilliant results through the years, like the overall win in the Vuelta al País Vasco and the climber`s jersey in the Vuelta a España. He would be a great addition to any team, and is just what Euskaltel need right now. Euskaltel sorely need another stage-racer, and Aitor certainly fits the bill.
