This is Euskaltel Euskadi rider Jon Izagirre sailing to victory on the final climb of yesterdays Giro d'Italia stage 16. His second ever professional victory and undoubtedly his best, Izagirre's victory is far more than that - it's a 'job done' for Euskaltel Esukadi, another valuable boost in the teams much publicised fight for WorldTour Survival. At just 23 years of age, it's clear that the teams mission to develop Basque Country riders is working, with young talented riders like Jon Izagirre filling the teams roster. It would be a very sad day when Euskaltel can no longer compete at the highest level. If you are unfamiliar with the teams current situation, you can find all of the background here, here and here.
