Professional Continental team Andalucía Cajasur is working on its squad for 2008. On Monday it announced the signing of three new riders: Francisco José Ventoso, José Antonio Redondo and José Antonio Carrasco.

Francisco José Ventoso is the most well-know of the trio, having ridden for Saunier Duval since he became professional in 2004. This year, he took three stage wins, all of them during the Vuelta a Castilla y León, and was second in stages of Paris - Nice, the Challenge of Mallorca, the Vuelta a Andalucía and the Vuelta a Asturias.

José Antonio Redondo became professional in 2005 with Liberty Seguros and later continued his career with Astana. The 22 year-old has no professional victories to his name, but displayed a promising performance at the 2006 Vuelta a España.

José Antonio Carrasco, who rode for the under 23 team of Andalucía-Cajasur this season, is entering his first year as a professional in 2008.
