Is Madrazo that obascure though? His name has been mentioned often on here if I recall rightly, in young riders thread and even the CQ game.

yeah I agree. A rider with very little known would be cool.

But still good, Madrazo seems like a likable character, hopefully this can help build his confidence a bit.

This is similar to what they did at the Vuelta to Johnny boy.

Then again being named after a whiskey and riding for the worst team does help.

Who might be the target for such treatment next year? ( i mean at Vuelta 11)

Anyone got any ideas?

Jack Bauer.

Choosing Madrazo is good as long as it doesn't become a way to mock him for being dorky or whatever. The support should be as sincere as possible. Some of us actually like him for real, you know.

Arthur had a really great time last year. Should be no different for Angel.

I suspect he looks a lot less dorky when he's in race mode:

I have to say though, that Movistar jersey in the other photos looks a size too big or is "club cut" or something, I hope they've got a better fitting kit for him coming.
