Tour de France - Euskaltel eye podium for Sanchez, stages
Basque team Euskaltel Euskadi said they were targeting stage wins and a podium GC place for Samuel Sanchez after naming their team for this year's Tour de France.
"Winning a stage is the ultimate goal," admitted team manager Igor Gonzalez de Galdeano.
"Last year we went away empty handed and we can't allow that to happen again.
"It is also a dream of ours to reach the podium, we were very close last year with Samuel and we aim to get him there this time."
The team will gather on Wednesday in Rioja Alavesa to specifically train for stage two of the Tour de France which this year will be a 23km team time-trial.
The Tour de France begins on July 2nd.
