Buendía signed with Barbot

By Antonio J. Salmerón

Former 3 Molinos Resort member Jesús Buendía has reached a contractual agreement for the rest of the 2007 season with the Portuguese squad Barbot-Halcon, which is led by the veteran Claus Michael Möller.

The Spaniard was born in Mula (region of Murcia) in 1982, and made his debut in 2006 with 3 Molinos Resort. From the beginning of this season Buendía was riding for the amateur team Avila-Rojas, and has won the Trofeo Guerrita, a race that is part of the Copa de España as well as the Vuelta a Cartagena.

"First I have to show to my director that I am in good enough form to be selected for the team riding in the Volta a Portugal, which is the main goal for us and where Möller will be our leader", Buendia expressed to yesterday. "I am very happy because the most important thing is to return to professional competition again. The truth is that in these hard days for cycling, it has been like a great triumph for me," the Spaniard added.
