Blanco signed with Duja-Tavira

By Antonio J. Salmerón

In Lisbon, the Portuguese Duja-Tavira team has officially presented 31-year-old David Blanco as its team leader for 2007 and 2008. The Portuguese squad worked hard to sign the Spanish rider, a former Comunitat Valenciana climber. Yielding to persistent pressure from Duja-Tavira, Blanco broke a pre-contract with Karpin-Galicia.

Blanco won the final general classification and two stages of the Volta a Portugal in 2006, and he aims to win again in 2007. Blanco turned pro in 2000.
