Only Jan Hruska, Santos González, Toni Tauler, Jesús del Nero, Mikel Artetxe and Alberto Benito remain unaffected by the withdrawal of 3 Molinos Resort Murcia Turística as a team sponsor and management company of the eponymous team. The Spanish neo-professional 3 Molinos rider, Jesús Buendia, has joined the list of former riders with the team.

On Monday, a lawyer for the Professional Cyclists Association (ACP) and 3 Molinos Resort management met to try and reach an agreement that would satisfy both riders and sponsor, but it proved impossible. The 3 Molinos Resort proposed to pay four months as a settlement of contract rescission, but this offer was not accepted by all of the affected riders.

Today, Wednesday, all the 3 Molinos Resort Murcia Turística riders will meet with the team management to discuss the team's future. After the last meeting, 3 Molinos Resort management announced that, "there exists the firm intention of continuing indefinitely, but it is necessary to trim the team and the budget, without compromising on quality".
