Gipuzkoan cyclist Alex Aranburu feels "proud" to have the confidence of Astana to lead the team in the 112th edition of the Milan San Remo, the first monument of the season that will be held on Saturday with a 299-kilometer route. The Basque cyclist will carry the stripes alongside the Italian Fabio Felline, "an honor" that excites a 25-year-old rider who in 2020 achieved seventh place and who has just obtained sixth place in the Omloop.

"I am looking forward to racing at Milan-San Remo again. I have fond memories of this race. It is an absolutely incredible race, a monument, and it has a great history. But it is also a nervous race. You have to focus all day, the 298 kilometers you need to stay focused, "he said. The responsibility will be high for Aranburu, who will be able to play his sprinter tricks if the race is resolved in a reduced sprint.

"I am proud and honored to lead the team, so I will try to do my best on Saturday. So far, I feel very good and had a good start to the season on the opening weekend in Belgium and the Tirreno Adriatico. "he added. Aranburu will be supported by a team that also includes his countryman Gorka Izagirre. "We have a good team and I hope that luck will be with us this weekend. To finish it with another result in the top ten would be incredible for me," he concluded.
