Colombian Walter Pedraza is experiencing difficulty finding a new contract for this season. Katusha decided not re-sign the former Tinkoff Credit Systems team rider for 2009.
Pedraza, who finished third overall at the Vuelta a Burgos in Spain and eighth in Tour de Austria, only wants to race in Europe this year. "I'm looking for new team, ProTour, Professional Continental or Continental because I want only to ride in Europe this season."
Pedraza rode for Selle Italia-Diquigiovanni in 2006 and 2007.
The rider achieved his dream of contesting the Vuelta a España in 2008. "[It was] a dream for me," he said. "I was in good form with some breaks and very combative, but it was not enough. In Colombia I was bronze medal in the national championships."
In 2005 Pedraza was Colombian National Champion and finished second overall at Vuelta a Colombia.
