Caisse d'Epargne's Oscar Pereiro has been forced to cancel his participation in the Vuelta a Castilla y León which starts this Tuesday in Valsain, north-west of the Spanish capital Madrid. The Spaniard had to abandon Paris-Nice last week after suffering from bronchitis and has not fully recovered according to a team press release.

In order to allow Pereiro sufficient recovery time, the team have decided to replace him in the five-day event with veteran rider Vicente García Acosta.
