Teams & Riders Viva Lazkano: The Basque Buffalo

ZDbc4TLEkD63k6ixZjXTrH-1200-80.jpg


One of the breakout stars of the 2023 season has definitely been Oier Lazkano. The Basque rider has taken the world by storm with eye-catching performances on Argentine mountains, Flemish cobbles, French cotes, in the Swiss Alps and on Spanish muritos. He's not half bad at time trialing either.

And he loves a good old breakaway, which has laid the foundation for most of his top results. As Spanish champion, there will be a bit pressure on his shoulders ahead of the Vuelta, but if given the chance, he seems to be able to deliver the goods. Both as a domestique for Mas and as a stage hunter, he could very well be on his way to a pretty successful home GT.
 
He has the perfect build for 1-day races and breakaways.
Someone who doesn't seem to run out of energy as proven by his awesome ride in Dwars door Vlaanderen, and he can TT as well so can finish off a breakaway solo.

And he seems to be in really good shape just before the Vuelta, so very much looking forward to what he can achieve there.

I wonder what he can do on shallow MTFs and punchy stuff from a break. If he can add that to his arsenal, he can win a stage or two in this Vuelta. Signs are its no problem as long as the climbing isn't super enough.

This guy will probably be one of the best GT breakaway specialists. I have no doubt he will show this in this Vuelta with this shape and a nice and easy race program lately, but the biggest question is the classics. He does seem to have the tools he need to anticipate alá Asgreen and Pedersen in the big ones, but obviously isn't at that level yet, but can maybe get their because his motor on his day is just insane.
 
My favourite attack of the season, held them off for 160k in the break, I'll never forget the look of confusion on Kristoff's face as he toiled in his wheel, and his interview where he said how happy he was with 2nd because Spanish people don't usually do well in the cobbled classics.

Poor Christophe Laporte, I didn't even remember he had won, never seen the commentators be more excited for the sprint for 2nd.

He's a good TTist, what happened to him today ? Did he fall?
I hope not. I hope he did some work and either was planned to drop or lost contact (bad curve or the like) and let go. I was wanting to say he was maybe already tactically losing time for breakaways in the coming days, but that doesn't make sense in a short 14K race where he could have been instrumental to win the TTT.

His attack today reminded me of a prime cancellara or Ballan, this guy has to be one of the hottest talent in cycling right now. And one of my favourite young riders, aggressive and smart.

Started the season very early, no altitude camps or anything, just good hard miles at home in Vitoria.

Thanks Sami for making the thread with such a nice start so I didn't have to.

Sami? I'm not named after a football player or skier ;)

He found right moment to attack and was strong enough to hold on and also catch Molenaar before the line. He's in a good GC position now, so the team can use him tactically. Rubio and Sánchez will probably do better than him on stage 4.

Any update on him? I am also facing an error while uploading chunks to Azure and I want to know the reason why and that is why I came here to find my answer. I am glad I found your post, I was actually searching for this https://academized.com/buy-case-study-online website online because I want to buy case study for my younger brother and when I was searching for it online, I found link to your post as well.

Any update on him?
