Gero Arte Roberto

And now, we take a break from politics to give a warm farewell to Basque cyclist Roberto Laiseka, here you have the note from EITB:


Euskal-Euskadi Basque rider Roberto Laiseka announced Tuesday he gives up cycling at the age of 37 years old.

In a press conference in the County Council of Bizkaia in Bilbao, Laiseka explained he took the decision to give up as he has not recovered yet from a long knee injury he suffered last Italian Giro.

Laiseka was the only rider in Euskaltel-Euskadi left from those that were in the Basque team when it was born in 1994. He has won stages at Spanish Vuelta and Italian Giro.
