Carlos Sastre is expected soon to bring to an end the speculation about which team he will join for the 2009 season. He has called a press conference to be held on Friday morning, during the Vuelta a España's first rest day. Sastre currently rides for Bjarne Riis' Team CSC-Saxo Bank.
On Wednesday, the 33 year-old Sastre was first linked to the Katusha team - something he later denied. The same day, he was also rumored to have signed with the Canadian Cervélo TestTeam.
"At the time I make a decision on my future, I will communicate it personally to the media," he said recently.
