Belda asks for compensation from Unipublic

By Antonio J. Salmerón

Comunidad Valenciana team manager, Vicente Belda, announced that he will be seeking damages from Unipublic after Vuelta a España organiser Victor Cordero recently announced his organisation will withdraw the team's wildcard invitation to the race.

"He is playing with the bread of 32 innocent families," said Belda to EP, correctly forewarning (see above story) that "from the 1st of January 2007, the Comunidad Valenciana [team] will disappear.

Describing the decision as "catastrophic", Belda declared that on Friday [today], "we will obtain a certificate under Court Instruction number 31 in Madrid to demonstrate that the Comunidad Valenciana riders are neither implicated nor investigated. Then, we are going to request damages from Unipublic."
