Saunier Duval Prodir today announced its team for the last grand tour of the season. José Ángel, Gómez Marchante and Koldo Gil are the team's candidates for the GC. Gómez Marchante won the Tour of the Basque Country in April, although he had a poor Tour de France. Koldo Gil, who had some good mid-season results, including one stage victory and second place overall at the Tour de Suisse, is coming back after a series of injuries and has had only 20 training days.

David Millar will also be at the Vuelta's start in Malaga, competing in his second grand tour since returning from a drugs ban. Leonardo Piepoli is the team's climber and Francisco Ventoso is the nominated team sprinter. David Cañada has recovered from the broken collar bone he sustained in the Tour. The remaining riders are José Ángel Gómez, Juan José Cobo and David de la Fuente, the most aggressive rider at the 2006 Tour de France.
