Indurain: Spain’s low-profile hero

GP Indurain in trouble?

The race that bears his name — the GP Miguel Indurain (1.HC) — could be in trouble.

According to a report in the Diario de Navarra, organizers of the race, set for March 31, are facing a budget shortfall that could force the cancellation of the one-day race.

The lead organizer of a the racing club in Estella says that the racing club is 30,000 euros short of the 130,000-euro budget to hold the race. Government backing, to the tune of 60,000 euros last year, is still not assured for the 2012 edition.
