Igor looking on the bright side of Vuelta


At today's well-deserved day off in the Vuelta, Igor spoke to Euskaltel's homepage yet again. Here's what the climbing specialist had to say: "I'm doing better that expected. I've been among the best on the three mountainous stages, and that boosts my morale. I'm not thinking about winning a stage, I'm just thinking of being useful to the team. We're doing a good race. On the queen-stage we had two riders in the break, while Samu was third and I was eighth. That result should be valued, as it's all but easy to obtain them". Igor is 13th overall going into the last part of the Spanish Grand Tour, and I would love to see him among the 10 on the final general classification. Wouldn't it be awesome to have two riders among the ten best in the Tour AND the Vuelta?

A new "Mayo" perhaps...? I like his attacking style in stage 10 - race ´til death or die behind.. :)

It would be great for Euskaltel and for the protourranks too !!

Well, he's always been nicknamed the "new Mayo". The resemblances are striking, but I think Iban is just a bit more gifted. Though, Igor can become a world-class climber and stage-racer. I think Igor has got all it takes to win, say, the Vuelta in perhaps 3 years. He's an amazing rider...
