biciciclismo has an article up about the possible end of Pais Vasco and SanSeb this year. the gist, as i understand it (via the translation gremlims), is that the local Basque government can only provide 60 percent support for the editions this year, and despite best efforts, the remaining monies have not been found. this also poses a threat to possible editions in 2013 and going forward. a sad day for cycling if these two long held races, 51 and 31 editions, respectively, disappear from the calendar.
if i misunderstood any of the article, please clarify the points in the comments. thank you.
