Euskadi-Murias has attended the presentation of the 2018 Vuelta a España route, keeping the hope that it will be invited for the grand tour.

In its first year as a pro continental team, the Spanish formation has a wildcard to the country's grand tour as its main objective.

"The 2018 Vuelta a España has an ideal route for the brave, for teams that want to move the race, for strategies for the leaders," said Sports Manager Jon Odriozola, who attended the event. "Personally, I love this route and it would be beautiful for the team to be a protagonist.

"The stage between Getxo and Monte Oiz would be an incredible moment because of the emotional meaning that it has, spectacular for all the Basque people; that is our marked out stage and the most beautiful to us."

The team is determined to have a good start of the season to earn one of the Vuelta wildcards. "We want to show that we are a solid project," he explained. "We are very happy in the team with the acknowledgement and the help of Javier Guillen (Director of the race) for this project to move forward.

"Now it is our turn to work to earn the invitation, to show that we are a competitive team that can make the grade in each race and has a level that the Vuelta deserves."
