Euskaltel get rid of Amets Txurruka. Yes, really.

When I saw this this morning I almost fell off my office chair in shock and indignation. Euskaltel are not renewing the contract of Amets Txurruka (or Ivan Velasco) for 2013, citing lack of WT points. This is barmy. Ruben and Alan Perez, Minguez, Cazaux, Azanza and Oroz are staying and guess what? They don't have any points either. Txurruka is an emblem of the fighting spirit of Euskaltel and has done more for the team than most of them, arguably all of them. He's a fighter, a grafter and a useful helper for the team's stars. This makes no sense to me. I'm upset and pretty angry. Go to Caja Rural, Amets, attack the hell out of your racing and show them what they've lost. Bah.
