Beñat Intxausti has signed for Euskadi-Murias for the 2019 season. The Spaniard makes the move after spending three seasons at Team Sky.

The rider has had a couple of difficult years due to health problems, particularly due to mononucleosis. Intxausti has had prominent results in the past including an overall win at the Tour de Beijing and at the Vuelta a Asturias, as well as stage victories in races like the Giro d'Italia.

"Now I'm feeling well and I'm looking at the future," said the rider. "I believe in this project, it is our project, the leading project of the Basque cycling that is preparing good bases always thinking and taking care of the home riders.

"The team has been consolidated little by little, mostly at the 2018 season, taking some important results. That is why I have made a bet on this team."

Jon Odriozola, General Manager of Euskadi-Murias, is pleased with the news. "For us is very important to count on Beñat Intxausti for the next season. He is one of the best Basque riders and even though he has had two bad years, we want to bring him back and achieve nice things with him."
