Euskaltel's Juanjo Oroz is a father for the first time. After completing the second stage of the Basque Country, he drove to Pamplona arriving just 3 minutes before the birth!

Son Oihan and mother are doing well.

@Wouter Weylandt:

In september i'll be daddy cool!! Yeah!


And now reading this is just so sad! :(


On a lighter note: A little "calf" was born last night when Chris Anker Sørensen, aka "The Ox from Hammel", became daddy to a healthy baby-girl.

Yeah! I just had to make a lame word-play!

Well... my grandfather was called Jens Jensen I guess that's sorta the same...

Yeah, I kinda like it. Ewan McEwen, Jens Jensen. Rhyming.

You know, I think the original meaning of Mc or Mac - was "of the family" - so it is Ewan of the Ewens. And "sen" on the end, is I think, related to the frequent Germanic use of "son" - Jens son of Jens.

If they still followed that tradition - and I think some do, like say, in Iceland (?) - then your kids would have a last name of Redsen, eh?

Joking - just joking!
