About Fundación Euskadi
From the community spirit, a social fund was created that would provide the backing and protection for the team and riders; it is a way of giving back to the athletes everything they had given the region. Within this wide description of support for riders and the visibility of cycling, priority was given to the creation of a professional cycling team, made up by athletes born in Álava, Bizkaia, Gipuzkoa and Navarre or who trained in the amateur ranks in these territories. The visibility that this team has acquired in international competitions has served to make Basque sports known around the world.
THIS PRIVATELY MANAGED SOCIOCULTURAL ORGANIZATION WAS FOUNDED ON JUNE 17, 1993 FOR THE EXPRESS PURPOSE OF "PROMOTING, SUPPORTING, POPULARIZING AND DEVELOPING THE SPORT OF BASQUE CYCLING".
The peak of this unstoppable growth came with the invitation from the Tour de France organization to compete in the 2001 edition. After two season of playing a brilliant role on the French calendar, the organization presided over by Miguel Madariaga saw how their tremendous efforts paid off with their inclusion in the French race, the hallmark of international cycling. The dream of the foundation, to compete in the best race in the world with cyclists born or trained in Euskadi, had come true. And that was not all. Weaving through a sea of orange, Roberto Laiseka came in with an unforgettable victory in Luz Ardiden. In 2003, right in the middle of the 'boom\, Iban Mayo, won at Alpe d'Huez, and Haimar Zubeldia faced off against Lance Armstrong and Jan Ullrich, among others.
