Caisse d'Epargne manager Eusebio Unzué has announced on Thursday that the team has added Juan José Cobo to its roster for next year. The current Fuji-Servetto rider is the fourth major recruitment for the Spanish squad after the signing of Italian Marzio Bruseghin, Frenchman Christophe Moreau and Colombian Mauricio Soler.

Cobo, a strong climber, won the overall classification of the Vuelta al País Vasco in 2007 and this year scored stage victories in Castilla y León and the Vuelta a España. In 2008, when he was riding for Saunier Duval, the 28-year-old placed second in stage ten to Hautacam, before having to leave the race with his entire team due to the doping offenses of his teammates Riccardo Riccò and Leonardo Piepoli.
