Basque media have reported that Santos Gonzalez is suing the Swiss Phonak cycling team for one million Euros in response to the rider's sacking during the Vuelta a España. Following an internal test where Gonzalez' values exceeded the team's self-imposed limits, the Spaniard claims that the team blackmailed him by asking him to renounce his already existing 2006 contract. According to Gonzalez, he refused to do so, which is why he was taken out of the race by his team and later sacked.
