Why does he call himself El Gorrión de Cazoña?

"My father was a cyclist, he was the best climber of his group and then his friends would call him the Cazoña Eagle (Cazoña is the neighborhood where I live in Santander). I told some friends of mine and they started calling me the Cazoña Sparrow, so the story"

No, but results like these DO make him a good cyclist:

8/04/2012 1.1 [Esp] 5 Klasika Primavera Amorebieta 32
31/03/2012 1.HC [Esp] 3 GP Miguel Indurain 70
12/02/2012 2.1 [Fra] 5 Tour Méditerranéen 50
12/02/2012 2.1s [Fra] 4 Tour Méditerranéen, Stage 4 : La Ciota - Col du Corps de Garde 3
22/01/2012 2.WT [Aus] 14 Tour Down Under 39

(already has more cq points than 2011 btw). Last year when he had a chance to go for himself, he was not bad either

2/04/2011 1.HC [Esp] 5 GP Miguel Indurain 56
25/07/2011 1.1 [Esp] 5 Prueba Villafranca de Ordizia 32
26/06/2011 NC1 [Esp] 4 National Championships Spain (Castellon de la Plana) R.R. 63
7/10/2011 2.WTs [Chn] 7 Tour de Beijing, Stage 3 : Men Tou Gou - Yong Ning Town 2
2/09/2011 GT2s [Esp] 7 Vuelta a España, Stage 13 : Sarria - Ponferrada 5

--

Give him a few years and he will be a good hilly classics rider and gt stage winner

Also a couple of stages where he's been strong in some difficult races and has been on the attack late on but been caught hence the results don't show how strong he was - the Tirreno stage into Macerata and the Vuelta stage into San Lorenzo de El Escorial spring to mind immediately.

I love Madrazo. He's always entertaining to watch, and he's very good as well - you always get the feeling that he can finish what he's trying to do.

Also, he's one of the few riders who's on my CQ team for the second year in a row ;)

Here's hoping he has a safe ride. Too many accidents recently.
