new interest in this team - seem to have been around a long time - but having checked not that long?? or in another guise?

they signed Kwiatkowski brothers in 2010 Radoslaw and Michal - one kept going - got Hugh Carthy now and some old burners ie David Arroyo

Any info

    Seems a very strange set up from what I remember, riders on different group and wheel manufacturers etc.

    But they usually "race" when they are in races so I like them.
    It's not so much about winning, I just hate losing.

    Always good value for plucky mountain breakaways. I'm a fan.

    I love these guys, always smashing it off the front in a breakaway. Ángel Madrazo is always good value (He was the crazy guy on secondment to Movistar in the 2013 Tour of Britain)

    Not a secondment - he rode with them as far back as the Caisse days. Bit of a dude.

    Ah OK, I loved his antics. Definitely a nutter :-)

    Madrazo was amazing that Tour of Britain he was going for every jersey, every day!

    I love the team, you can trace them back to being Caja Rural, then Paternina for a while (with Marino Lejaretta) and then through to today.

    This gives a slightly different version of my memory...
