Samuel Sánchez will lead a versatile Euskaltel team in Sunday's Amstel Gold Race. Igor Antón will not be present, but it is expected the number three-ranked rider in the world will hand over leadership duties to the Galdakao-native for Fleche Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
Lining up in the first of the three hilly classics will be super domestiques Egoi Martínez and Jorge Azanza, allrounders Rubén Pérez and Gorka Izagirre and youngsters Ricardo García, Peio Bilbao and Romain Sicard.
