Mikel Landa will not run the Spanish championships in Murcia this weekend

The Alava cyclist has resigned to compete in the Spanish Time Trial and route to finalize his preparation for the start of the Tour de France (July 6-28).


Mikel Landa will not take the start in the Spanish championships in the time trial and route modalities. The Alava corridor is in Andorra preparing the Tour de France that starts next week. He has spent a few days inspecting the alpine stages of the Tour and has also been resting at his home in Murgia: "I do not want to go to Murcia because it's going to be an oven with so much heat, and prefiero be in Andorra and review the Pyrenean days and the Pau chrono of the next Tour ".

No will be presented neither on the starting line of the clock on Friday nor on the route of Sunday by la mañana. It is something that I had been meditating since the end of the Giro and that Movistar Team has already made official in the last hours. The telephone set will go to the individual time trial of the Spanish championships with Jaime Castrillo, Lluis Mas and Marc Soler. On Sunday morning, already online, it will compete with Jorge Arcas, Carlos Barbero, Héctor Carretero, Jaime Castrillo, Imanol Erviti , Rubén Fernández, Lluis Mas, Antonio Pedrero, Eduard Prades, José Joaquín Rojas, Marc Soler, Rafa Valls, Alejandro Valverde and Carlos Verona.

Así, Mikel Landa will not be part of the Movistar team in Murcia. Everything indicates that it will be his last season with the Navarrese and although he has already contacted Bahrain-Mérida, he has not signed anything definitive. His intention is to star in a great Tour de France to be able to awaken the interest of other first class squads. He does not want to repeat what happened three years ago when was committed to Movistar after the Giro and then did a great Tour that provoked higher offers that he could not accept. It will be examined in France and then signed. For better or worse. It will be a great test for him and he will work to win it. As much as Nairo Quintana has proclaimed himself the only leader of the ranks. The road will put everyone in his place. The Colombian does not aim to be Movistar next year.
