3 Molinos Resort is interested in joining Caisse d'Epargne

By Antonio J. Salmerón

According to the Spanish radio Onda Regional de Murcia, the 3 Molinos Resort properties held a secret meeting with the general manager of the Caisse d'Epargne-Illes Balears, José Miguel Echavarri, during his stay in Murcia (Spain). 3 Molinos Resort is hoping to reach an agreement that will bring them to the ProTour level and allow them to work with Alejandro Valverde, who is from the same region as the resort company.

According to sources close to the Spanish company, 3 Molinos Resort is interested in joining with Caisse d'Epargne starting with 2007, but first the company must decide on their professional continental team of the same name. The agreement between both parties could be made soon but they are waiting for Illes Balears to decide if they will continue their co-sponsorship into 2007.

3 Molinos Resort is very keen in having Valverde help sell their image. Also, it is reported that they are interested in current Astaná riders, Luis León Sánchez and José Joaquín Rojas, both from Murcia.
