Roberto Torres, the sports director of 3 Molinos Resort, said that he will leave the team. Speaking to Spanish newspaper El Faro de Murcia, Torres. "My decision to leave was made when I saw that my role as director didn't make any sense."

Torres has directed the team to some victories this year, including most recently the Spanish time trial championship, won by Toni Tauler. There were also the Vuelta a Murcia (Santos González), Clásica de Alcobendas (Jan Hruska), and a stage of the Vuelta a Asturias (Mikel Artetxe).

The decision was made after a meeting between the president of the team's managing company, Josefina Alcaraz, and Torres. 3 Molinos Resort stated that Torres' departure is "a beneficial agreement for both parties."

For the time being, team manager Ginés Garcia will take over as sports director, until the appointment of a new director is made.
