Euskadi-Murias has been given the green light to do the pre-inscription for the Tour de France.

The Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO) has given the Spanish squad the access to its calendar, including the Tour de France. This access is the product of the good season the formation had in 2018, that included victories in WorldTour races like the Tour of Turkey and the Vuelta a España.

"This year will take another step towards the growth of our team," said Sports Manager Jon Odriozola. "The Tour has started to consider and value us by giving us the chance to formalise the invitation. The application has been made and we are in the preselection, knowing that 2019 will be complicated.

"The ASO platform also invited us to send applications to all of its races, which is a very important step. We are very satisfied because we see that our dream of returning to the Tour de France is getting closer."

Euskadi-Murias has also sent applications to races like Paris-Nice and the Criterium du Dauphine.
