Fuerteventura and the Canary Islands will join to sponsor a new Pro Continental cycling team in Spain, which will take a large part of the old team Comunidad Valenciana structure. Its manager will be the Canarian architect Jorge Sastre, and its directors could be Oscar Guerrero, who was the director sportif of Pro Continental Kaiku for the last two seasons, and Juan Martínez Oliver, coming from Andalucia-Paul Versan.

Spanish newspaper Meta2Mil reports that Adrián Palomares, Mikel Artetxe, José Adrián Bonilla and local rider Dailos Díaz will form part of the 14 riders who will eventually make up the team that is slated to run over the 2007 and 2008 seasons.

The ex-DS of Comunidad Valenciana, Vincente Belda, has denied that he will be the director of the new team and stated that he will only act as an advisor for the team. Further, according to todociclismo.com, Belda commented that the team would have a modest budget of €1.8 million.
