Ángel Casero resigns

2001 Vuelta a España winner Ángel Casero has quit his job with the Spanish Continental team 3 Molino Resort-Murcia Turística. The brother of Rafael Casero, who was declared unfit to race at the very beginning of the Vuelta Valenciana, had started the function of technical assistant with the team this season, after retiring from racing in 2005, where he had been with Comunidad Valenciana.

"I rate this experience as positive, because it made me see business side of cycling in which there are other interests than purely the sporting ones," Casero said in a statement. "My success was not in the pedal stroke, but in a multitude of variables, many of which did not depend on me. I leave with the satisfaction of having done my best possible work. I wish the team all the luck in the world for its career in professional cycling."
