Alfonso Rodríguez, the manager and director of the Spanish Pro Continental team Extremadura-Ciclismo Solidario indicated that the team may continue to exist in the foreseeable future. The team is backed by the government of Extremadura, a province in western Spain.
On the website Extremaduraciclismo.net, Rodríguez gave his idea on the future. "We could work for a project of three or four years, without asking ourselves every year if we wil continue."
Apparently the budget of 600,000 euro Rodríguez received this season isn't a problem. "It's profitable, if it goes together with the right image. And we look after that very much. We were the first to present our project to the authorities."
There are still a lot of rumours about the possible continuation of Extremadura-Ciclismo Solidario. There is a little bit of doubt if the regional government of Extremadura will continue the support. But a possible sponsor would be the Loterías de Boyacá, a Colombian lottery.
They currently support a Colombian team, headed by Vicente Belda. The reason for a potential support of a Spanish team is the desire to reach the European market. There is already a rider the team would like to have in its ranks Óscar Sevilla. Sevilla is currently with Rock Racing.(AS)
