ECONOMIC HARDSHIPS: REUTERS reported the team is "comprised mostly of Basque riders." Telecom Euskaltel "surprisingly announced" that it would no longer "support the team, in part down to co-sponsors opposing the decision to allow more non-local professionals into the squad, not helped by Spain's economic crisis." Like La Liga side Athletic Bilbao, Euskaltel-Euskadi "had come to represent the heartland of Spanish cycling and was widely regarded as one of the top teams on the Tour." But the team has "never won a Grand Tour, which will surely be the focus of Alonso and his advisers for the coming seasons" (REUTERS, 9/2).
