Zubeldia staying at Euskaltel
Haimar Zubeldia, after many discussions and rumours, has decided to stick to his team Euskaltel-Euskadi through 2008. The Basque rider, who finished in the Top 10 of the Tour de France twice in his career, had been linked to other teams in the media, together with another well-known climber of the team: Iban Mayo. The squad's management has not yet revealed if Mayo will remain or if he will leave.

Nicholas Fritsch (Saunier Duval) has been reported to have signed a contract with German Gerolsteiner for next season. The 27 year-old French rider has been a professional since 1998, and won the Tour du Finistère in 2003.
