Adrián Palomares confirmed his signing with the Professional Continental team Grupo Nicolás Mateos-Murcia. The 31 year-old Spaniard had other offers, but chose the team, "because Ginés García insisted he counted on me. In addition to that I know him from my U-23 era," said Palomares. In 2007, Palomares had his best season since his debut in 2000 while riding for the Furerteventura-Canarias, winning a stage and taking second place overall in the Tour of Britain and taking one stage of the Regio Tour and fifth overall.
With the one-year contract with Grupo Nicolás Mateos-Murcia, Palomares hopes to continue the success of last season, where he was able to recapture the aggressive style of racing which made him so successful in the lower category teams earlier in his career. "I still left a lot to say in cycling," Palomares told Cyclingnews.
